We hired Leanne to look after our 3 children for a Saturday. It was a first time thing for us as we normally rely on relative and we must say the care that Leanne gave our kids was fantastic. Leanne gave us a lot of understanding and support in advance of the day which reassured us a great deal. Leanne was very punctual and extremely polite, our kids took to her straight away, even our 4 year old who is usually very shy with new people. Through the day, Leanne kept in touch with my wife through text and at the end of the day our kids didn't want to see her go! In short, we were thrilled with Leanne and will definitely use her again."

I am very motivated and determined and would be a dedicated worker for any business.
| I am a highly motivated, kind and caring individual, enjoys working with children I decided to pursue my career with children after doing some voluntary work experience and enjoying this role so much that I wanted to continue it as my career choice. I am able to work well under pressure to reach goals and or targets or deadlines. I have worked from the age of 17, and have since developed a liking for achieving goals. Working alongside colleagues and customers has helped me grow, by aiding me to become more outgoing and confident. I believe that I am more than capable of the skills required that will enable me to make a positive contribution to a teaching/childcare environment. I find working with children; an extremely rewarding job, and enjoy it thoroughly. I find it easy to communicate with children of all ages and to give them the time that they need to overcome any problems or issues that they may be having. I think that allowing children to communicate and express themselves is very important so I find being a good listener is a big part of my role with working with children.
