Qualifications & Training
I first became involved in the pre-school when my two daughters attended in 2005 (my eldest) & 2008 (my youngest). I began as a Snack Assistant in 2009 working two days per week and studied for my NVQ level 2 in Children's Care, Learning & Development. During that time my days increased and my role changed to 'Pre-School Assisant'. I then went on to obtain my NVQ level 3 and became a 'Senior Pre-School Assistant' in 2011.
In 2013 I became the 'Deputy Manager'. Following Beryl's retirement in July 2016, after 23 years at the helm, I became 'Manager.' I am also a Designated Person for Safeguarding.
