I am looking for any child care work in Cumbria.
What I have done:
At the age of 11 I started at Wyndham School and left at the end of my GCSE year in 2003 when I was 16.
I then went on to study health and social care at the Lakes College in Cumbria.
After this I went on to study for a certificate in childcare at university of central Lancashire, Newton rig campus in Penrith Cumbria.
I studied childcare for one year and received a NVQ level 2 qualification in childcare and education.
I stayed on for anuther 2 years to study for my NVQ level 3 diploma in child care and education and was successful in obtaining it in June 2007.
In my spare time I enjoy listening to music and watching films. I enjoy walking and camping in the Lake District. I like to cook for my family and friends or go out for a meal and socialise with my friends.
April 2012 – Current
Nanny share for two families
I currently work as a nanny five days a week for the Newson family and two days a week for the Pritchard family.
I take care of one girl aged 19 months for five days a week and undertake light housekeeping duties.
Due to changes in Mrs Newson's employment I will be going down to two days a week from March. For the Pritchard's I take care of one girl aged two and one boy aged 15 months. I have all the children together for those two days a week.
I am responsible for all daily activities, including preparing and cleaning up after all meals. I take the children to playgroups to encourage socialisation and everyday we have outdoor play. I have a strong bond with the children and very good relationships with both families.
January 2012 – April 2012
Live out Nanny for a family with 2 Children a boy age 4 and Girl age 3 I was responsible for collecting them from pre school . I drove them home in my car and provided lunch. I looked after the children in their own home. We did lots of activities e.g. baking , walking, feeding animals, craft work and reading stories.
This was a part time position with no contracted hours. The reason for leaving this job was to take up my current position which was full time and contracted hours . This gave me a more guaranteed income as I have a mortgage to pay .

February 2011 – June 2011
In order to obtain a full-time Contract I decided to apply for a position in Adult Care as I was unable to secure this in a Child care setting.
I worked for Croftlands trust in Whitehaven as a support worker in a crisis house.
I helped support people who have mental health problems. I did two 10hr night shifts a week there.
I found this job very difficult and felt working with adults was not for me. I decided to return to childcare .
