About Me

Friendly 23 year old with 5+ years experience working alongside children with additional needs as well as mainstream nursery settings and secondary schools. Currently deputy manager of an after school and holiday provision at a special school in Bicester where I manage a team of staff and oversee the safety of a session for up to twenty five young people with additional needs and disabilities. I am DBS checked and have an in date paediatric first aid qualification. I have completed various professional training courses including Designated Safeguarding Lead and a food hygiene course. Currently completing a BSc Psychology undergraduate degree with The Open University and working 37 hours per week. For me, play is at the heart of a child's development and I think it is imperative that children have the ability to express themselves and be creative through play. Theres nothing I love more than a sing song and dance around the kitchen, being creative with arts and crafts, role playing with action figures and dolls, or being outside (I believe opportunity to explore outdoors in all weathers is SO important!

Please feel free to message if you have any further questions or if I can help in any way! I look forward to hearing from you, Shannon :)
