I have more than 13 years experience working with children from birth to 15 years.

I have worked as a Key Worker in a day nursery, and as a Deputy Manager and Key Worker in a nursery school.

The Key Worker roles consisted of working in partnership with parents and carers, interacting with the children and teaching them following the EYFS, planning, adapting and organising activities, doing observations and developmental records to help each child develop, learn and grow at their own pace and in the best way.

The Deputy Manager role included all of the above, as well as helping with the day-to-day running of the nursery, updating policies and risk assessments, writing reports, working in partnership with a number of other professionals, including Social Services and the First Team.

I have also been a Beaver Scout Leader and Scout Helper. In these roles, I planned and organized activities and outings, ran weekly meetings, and worked in partnership with parents and carers.

All of these helped my to provide the best care I could to help each child develop as an individual.
