    I always used to like having the babies (under 1s), but as I've got older I find the physical work involved is getting harder and harder. My knees and back definitely feel the strain!

    I now have all 3 & 4 year olds and I do like that age.

    Totally agree with this. Can’t bend down like I use to, well yes I can bend down it’s the getting back up gracefully without huffing and puffing I can’t do anymore. I really enjoy conversations with the children in their last year before school. Especially the ones I’ve had since babies as I take real pride in teaching them everything I know. So this would bring on another topic of - ‘ what’s the funniest thing a child has said to you?’

    I enjoy the 3 to 4 year olds most. I like the conversations we have, listening to the way they observe things. Also I feel I can do more with them, crafts themes can be more involved as well as group activities, games and role-play.
