About Me

My name is Ann Metcalfe I am 35 years old. I live with my Husband Marc and my 3 children Zommer 15 and Brogan 9 and Dylan 1 year

I am a very creative person who loves to do lots of arts and craft activities

i have worked in childcare since leaving education. Helping children to learn and develop is a fantastic opportunity one which I really enjoy. Seeing children develop there own personality and skills, knowing I have had something to do with there growth is the best job satisfaction I can get.

I currently live in Newton Hall area of Durham

My Experience

I have over 11 years experience in the childcare sector, working with children from 6 months old to 14 years old.

I started as a play leader in a holiday club caring for children aged 4 - 14 years. I progressed to Coordinator of the club, panning the activities for each scheme and organising a staff team.

Through my work at the holiday club I became a senior nursery officer at a private day nursery run by the same company. I worked at the nursery for 5 years until it closed September 2010

My role at the nursery has seen me care for and educate children form 6 months to 5 years. I was based in the pre school room (3-5years) where I cared for a group of up to 8 children seeing to there everyday needs and using observations and planning to encourage there development.

My role within the nursery also included being the Special educational needs officer and behavioral manager, which has given me lots of experience of working with individuals who require additional support, along side outside agencies and parents/carers. This has also given me the opportunity to keep up to date with current training and developments.

I am fully up to date with the Early Years Foundation stage and practices needed to keep records of developments.
