Apprentice Early Years Educator

Megan Hancock

My Journey...

I started with Our Monkey Club in April 2021 after moving from a career in Psychology. During my time in psychology I completed my original degree in psychology at Staffordshire University and then moved straight onto my Masters in Forensic Psychology at Coventry University. While I enjoyed my experiences, I felt I needed a change of direction and Our Monkey Club are supporting my move into the early years sector.

I started my Early Years Educator Apprenticeship in April 2021 at our centre on Robian Way on Swadlincote and quickly made friends with so many of the children. I have really enjoyed exploring the different activities with the children and identifying what it they are exploring and what their interests are.  My favourite activity to do with the chilren is rainbow bubble foam play.  It is so fun making the bubble foam with the children and seeing the childrens faces light up as they watch the bubbles grow. 

I am starting my studies now and look forward to exploring the opportunities and experiences offered within my new role and the apprenticeship program.
