My Experience

Nursery nurse for 3 years
Children's centre for 2 years including Children's Centre Group Team Leader for 1 year.

I have worked with children and families of all ages in various positions of paid work, volunteering and work experience.
I have worked within a private day nursery, I was part of a pre school team working with children 3-5 years preparing for school. I then became room leader of a toddler room within the same nursery. Within this role I worked with children 3 months- 2 years focusing on weaning, toilet training, speech development and establishing routine (sleeping, healthy eating etc). I also observed, assessed and planned for the children's development in line with the EYFS framework.
Throughout my time at the children's centre I held play work, outreach/safeguarding and management roles. I have worked closely with health colleagues and built a wealth of knowledge and experience in advising families on topics such as introducing solids to babies and breastfeeding. I have also completed a 4 day parenting and behaviour management course, and have a facilitated this course to groups of parents. I also worked with a range of Schools and Settings to develop best practice and monitor children's development across the area supported by the Children's Centre.

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Grace C. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Grace has provided a babysitting service for my daughter since she was 2 (she’s now 5) and Grace has made working extra hours in the evenings easier for me. My daughter is always so excited when Grace looks after her which makes me feel less guilty for not being around for bed times. Grace has gone above and beyond and built a great relationship with not only my daughter but myself too. My daughter is super excited for Grace to be her childminder in the school holidays where I’m confident she will continue to thrive, be safe and have lots of fun.
