James studied the Foundation Degree in Early Years while working as the manager of Busy Bodies Childcare Centre in Ludlow. He had an article published in Nursery World where he recommended making childcare more flexible and affordable by charging by the hour rather than per half day.

James hopes to improve the nursery he manages and is working towards Ofsted 'Outstanding' .
