Fun caring child carer
I have been qualified since 1995 and have over 20 year’s childcare experience, Mainstream and Special Needs. This includes emotional and challenging behaviours. I feel I can bring a lot to this role, I am a good team player, I work well within a team, I am relaxed and calm in challenging situations, I am always trying to make myself better with keeping up to date with training, I am a good role model and can lead a team well. I am very approachable and staff tell me they feel very comfortable talking to me. I have Team Teach and I have used it regularly as a last resort. I help the manager with rotas, arrange cover if necessary, make sure policy and procedures are up to date, supervisions, make sure Keyworker roles and folders are kept up to date, along with my own Key Childs needs. I attend reviews and teacher child meetings making sure all transitions run smoothly. I cook home cooked meals for the young people, ensure their personal care and toiletries are always perfect.
I feel this role is the next step in my career and I am always looking to better myself. I always like new challenges, it keeps me alive.
