Level 1 Case Study – Honey Thomas


Honey started with Aspire Training Team in September 2022.

She had heard about the Level 1 Childcare Study Programme from her Mum who had seen an advert on Aspire’s Facebook page. Honey’s mum contacted Becky who set up a meeting the following week to discuss the course details. Honey immediately decided the course was exactly what she wanted to do and signed up a few days later. Honey didn’t like the idea of going to sixth from or college so the practical, small group workshops sounded perfect and work experience at a Nursery just down the road from where she lives was ideal.

Once Honeys DBS was completed she started straight away!

Honey spends her time interacting with the children and especially likes getting to know the daily routines and working with different ages from babies – preschool aged. Honey has taken part in Forest school and accompanied the children on trips to local parks and the beach. She loves getting messy with the children and providing them with fun craft activities.

Honey enjoys the small group workshops with her Tutor Justine and friends, and feels that she has learnt a lot from the knowledge gained in the practical sessions enabling her to bring it back and improve her practice with the children and her confidence.

Honey loves getting to know the individual children and their personalities and enjoys seeing them grow, reach new milestones and enjoy themselves.

Honey feels that her time in the nursery and the positive learning experiences have been such a benefit to her and her decision to pursue a career in childcare and we are delighted that Honey will be employed at the same setting, Tops Day Nursery in Corfe Mullen, from September to start her Level 2 Early Years Apprenticeship.

Well done Honey!
