I'm looking for career progression ideas after two years working in day nursery and 15 years nannying.
What's the next step?

When you find out, let me know  Wink
I'm currently doing a Level 4 Montessori course. I may use it to teach in a Montessori setting, may use it as a nanny. I'm also going to get some experience in a Steiner nursery.
You could train as a primary school teacher, midwife, play specialist, maternity practitioner. I think I may eventually like to be a childminder but would like to 'offer a bit more' such as work with the Montessori philosophy etc. You could also get Early Years teacher status and go from there. Have you thought about working in a sessional care nursery?

I'm at cross roads as well.

Trained as an early childhood teacher.
Nannied for seven years.
Maternity nursed for 10 years.
Just started a nanny position while I figure out what I should do next.
It's not easy trying to decide.  I also wonder if it's worth a visit to a career advisor.

I went to career advisor and their help was next to nothing. I want a complete change from nannying. I went recently to view a loft in a house to rent and the owner is a GP who is in her fifties and started her medical school at 41. Prior to that she was a professional violin player for over 20 years. That is what I call opportunities and courage.
