    I was ill last month/year and got these scars, like you get a plaster if you break your arm.

    Sorry, it's the best I could think of.

    Hi emy1234,

    It's really great that you are doing a health and social care diploma, sound's interesting. If you have any anxieties about your scars, how about running them past your tutor or even someone who works at the nursery? That's if you feel comfortable talking to them about this? You can maybe prepare some answers in case the children do ask?

    However, children, especially young children, are generally extremely accepting of anything. They do not have the same social ideology that adults have. You may find that they do not notice at all, or if they do ask, they will simply accept whatever answer you give them and move on.

    Good luck with your placement. Keep posting :)
