About Me

I am an ambitious, enthusiastic and qualified childcare practitioner who wants to gain further experience and opportunities in childcare. I love to see the children grow and develop through the play experiences I provide. I have extremely good organisational skills and timekeeping. I am very approachable, willing to help others and very keen to learn and develop myself, both professionally and personally. I work well as part of a team, but can also work to plan for my individual children on a one to one basis. I am passionate about outdoor play; I recently gained my qualification in Forest School and Outdoor Learning. Before Covid I helped assist with outdoor learning activities at least twice a week for children aged 2-5 years old.

My Experience

Child Practitioner - Work as part of a team to support and care for approximately 60 children a day across a before and after school club and a nursery. Providing fun, stimulating and learning experiences, and outings for the children to take part in, i.e. bread making, pizza making and caking decorating. Tailoring activities to the abilities and ages of the children involved. I help to prepare and serve a healthy and varied snack to the children as well as the cleanliness of the kitchen. Forest School Outdoor Learning assistant, I have helped with the sessions weekly, providing a range of activities and experiences for the children including, den building, mini beast hunting and tree climbing.

Chocolatier - My own chocolate business, creating and making moulded chocolates, bars and lollies of all different flavours. As well as selling to friends and family, I have also supplied a local florist with chocolates to be included with Mothers Day flowers. I supplied approximately 7000 individual moulded chocolates in boxes of 12 to the Black Shuck Gin Company using their own recipe sloe gin pulp to produce a bespoke chocolate which complicated their Sloe Gin. These were sold both locally in Norfolk and through their Black Shuck website and distribution chain.
