Hi, I’ve been a Qualified Nursery Practitioner for almost a year and a half over 10 years after. It was after helping at my Daughter’s school that I realised working in the Early Years is something I really wanted to do and had a passion for. I got the courage and decided to go college to study in NC Early Years Education and HNC Childhood Practice. During my time of study, I also had 2 work placements for 2 years where I was able to gain the knowledge I required, striving to be the best Practitioner I could be for each individual child. Although I am now Qualified, I am still learning every day on the job and also doing personal research and studying at home through the Skills Network. It’s such a reward to see the children learn new skills and develop their abilities through play, knowing I’ve been a part of it all with the bonds I’ve developed. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my Daughter, close family and friends by going to the cinema, museums or when the weather is good, visiting a variety of country parks!
