The well-being of children has always been important to me and to be involved in their welfare and development is a privilege. I show absolute devotion to the children in my care.
I am trustworthy, hard-working and have a natural bubbly disposition, which allows me to quickly build relationships with children and command complete trust from parents. I am diplomatic, sensitive to people’s needs and have the ability to cope under pressure.
I believe children need to be loved, nurtured, listened to and given the freedom to safely explore their surroundings, enabling them to learn, grow and be happy. Children in my care are encouraged to be polite, respectful and caring individuals, who understand the morals and values of the world we live in. Caring for babies and children is my passion and it is my goal to ensure they receive the highest care possible.
During my probation year at Norland College, I was proud to be awarded The Hollinsclough Cup in recognition of “the greatest ability in transferring her academic training to the implementation of those skills; with a willingness and enthusiasm that has nurtured the relationship between employer, children and professional conduct for the enhancement of those whom are in her care”.*
