Experience: 4 Years
Overall I have 4 years experience working in childcare settings. I worked at a Day Nursery, covering all 4 rooms working with children aged 0-5. While at the nursery I completed my NVQ Level 2 in childcare. I then went into Derby college and completed my CACHE Diploma Level 3 in childcare. During my time at college I underwent placements: One at a sure start centre working with children aged 2-3 years, then a Preschool working with children 2-5 years, then onto a Primary School working in different classes covering ages 5-9. During all placements I planned, arrived out and evaluated my work, also carrying out observations on children and reviewing their progress. After my 2 years at college, I went to live in France for 6 months working as an au pair. I looked after 3 children: 2 girls who were 8 and 12 and a boy aged 4 months. I looked after all 3 children on a daily basis, meeting their individual needs and keeping their parents informed. I absolutely love working with children of any age and watching them grow and develop.
