I had the great pleasure of chatting with Sid last week. He started his working life in a very different sector, as well as studying in a different country. Hear how he found his children have developed his practice and the experiences he has had as a male practitioner.

Men in Childcare: Interview with Tariq Nasser

Tariq Nasser has recently achieved his Montessori Diploma and is a keen advocate of the Montessori TariqNasserPhoto-smallphilosophies.

He is very proactive about getting men into childcare, being vice-chair of the Men in Childcare London branch and also encouraging pupils to do their work placements in nurseries.

Listen here to him talking about men just needing to have the confidence to do the job; how he feels that being at work is like having fun with your friends and (arguably most importantly) how once you get into a setting you’ll never want to leave.

Enjoy the podcast!
