The greatest thing about having opened First Steps Day Care was that I have had the privilege of meeting people from all walks of life. The opportunity to serve a diverse community and support young children and their families is one that is always valued.
My love for nurturing children has been cultivated over the years through my academic achievements as during this time, I have attained an NVQ4 and an M.A. in Early years education.
As a manager I love to see my staff grow and develop into confident and caring practitioners, I take a personal interest in supporting the growth of my staff’s knowledge and experience in Early Years.
I am of the view that a conducive learning environment can only be created if staff is well trained and have a genuine desire to work with young children.
In addition to this, we maintain a positive approach to working with other professional agencies as I feel this creates a secure support network for the children and families we serve.
Ensuring that all children, families and staff feel welcomed and supported is one of my core beliefs and therefore at the heart of our practice.
