CAPE Testimonial - Childrens Services and Childcare
BE an early childhood educator
"I have always been passionate about children, and I knew that a career with children would be fulfilling. But I’ve learned that it is also incredibly rewarding."
Carla was working towards a career in the building trades. Then she took stock of what she wanted in a career and made the brave decision to listen to her heart.
"I just decided that I wanted to be in a career where I would swing my legs out of bed every morning and for me, it kept coming back to childcare."
It's been a decision that has changed not only her career, but her life and it continues to reward Carla every day.
