My Experience

In 2002 I worked for two years as a PreSchool assistant and It was only part time but I prepared lessons for the children so they could learn as they played.
In 2006 I joined a nursery as a Nursery assistant and worked with different ages of children from birth to 4, once again I prepared the rooms for constructive activity's so they were learning as they played and related to early years outcomes.
In 2006 I left the nursery to work in a secure unit supporting young offenders from the age of 10 to 18 and this was a very challenging job, but also very rewarding and during my time working there I also studied a degree for social work.
In 2015 I left the north east to live in Essex and work with family intervention for six months and I then returned to the northeast to work with vulnerable people of the community.
In 2017 I supported a young mother with her first baby and offered advice, helped with laundry, shopping, feeds and social time
2022 : qualified Early Years Practitioner

I’m Sorry you Felt I was Rude, I choose not to take your babysitting job when you informed me you couldn’t afford me. My fees are Not expensive, just some parents can’t afford me . And if parents took into consideration the money we have to pay to keep us as legal Trusted child carers/ babysitting/ nanny’s then £5 a hour is less then the minimum UK Wage, plus it was going to be a 10 mile round trip from your house to mine and back.So please Forgive me if I choose Not to take your job , I’m a nice trustworthy person but unfortunately Uk 🇬🇧 living costs are expensive and I also need to earn a living.
