Never too old! I am 53 and just starting my career in childcare. I am zooming through Cert III, aiming for my diploma, love studying, love working with preschoolers and toddlers and bringing my lifeskills into focus. Now that my own children are grown up I am loving coming back to early childhood a bit wiser and able to give so much . It is also essential that we take good care of our own health and well-being so that we can be the best possible educators for the little ones.
