I am a passionate and dedicated person looking to expand my career in Childcare with the hopes of eventually running my own nursery. I would like to continue with my NVQ training and complete whatever is necessary to accomplish this. I am brilliant with children and love to get involved in everything they do. I have much experience working and entertaining children in groups and on a one to one basis. I have three young children of my own (two girls - 2 and 4 yrs and one boy - 5 yrs) and have dedicated the last five years of my life to provide the best care and loving environment available to them. I find I can easily communicate and bond with young children and they always feel comfortable around me. I strive to be kind and caring as well as fun and creative while teaching them the skills they need to develop into happy and bright children.
