Work experience Finally it was time for me to experience the big wide world of working all on my own. Since I found out that I was working at a pre-school I couldn't wait, how hard can it be to look after a bunch of 2 - 5 year olds? Well I was soon to find out at my interview. Everything was going well until I made one of the boys cry. I had only taken the car off him because he had broken it. He must have thought I was going to tell him off or something.

As soon as I saw Oliver's face I knew I was go to started crying. His little voice said. You cant go cos I aint gonna have no1 to play with. He sat on my lap and cuddled me where I started crying even though I promised I wouldn't. Looking back on my experience I had realise that I didn't want to become a nursery teacher.
