I am 29 years old, recently purchased my own home in Biggleswade. I have been out of Childcare for 5 and a half years but I would love the opportunity to get back into the industry. I also have a 7 year old step daughter, so have never really fully left childcare! Children thrive and learn when they are happy, relaxed, having fun and in the presence of somebody they feel comfortable with and trust. I'd be looking after the most previous things in your live, so transparency and honesty are key to a good personal working relationship. Experience listed below.
Teaching Assistant, Bedwell JMI, Stevenage
January 2013 – August 2014
Working alongside a newly qualified teacher in one of the Reception classes, helping with general day to day routines. Observing the children and putting continuous provision into place so that the activities are always child led. Within Reception there are a few children with Speech and Language difficulties, EAL children, and one child with ADHD. I work in small group times with these children and help them to develop and feel more confident within their skills, which they can put into practice within the classroom. During my time at Bedwell JMI I proactively help with various after school clubs, which gives me the opportunity to work with children of different age groups. This gives me the ongoing challenge I seek due to a number of the children involved with these clubs having strong additional needs.
