I am thoroughly enjoying this course

I am studying Child Care Level 3 online and I am thoroughly enjoying this course. I am unable to attend college so using Open Study College is perfect for me, as I can study in my own time. My tutor is always there to help and support me. I would definitely consider doing another course after I have finished this one.
