I have worked in childcare for 25 years, after completing my NC qualification in 1996. I then began work as an apprentice in a private setting, completing my SVQ 3 in Social Services. I then progressed from a qualified practitioner to a Deputy Manager for over 12 years. I started work at Pinocchio’s Eskbank as a senior practitioner and then transferred to Pinocchio’s Lasswade initially as a senior practitioner. In October 2021 I became the nursery manager.
I am a mum to two girls and enjoy spending time with them when not at work.
I am professional, organised and have a good understanding of child development; continually updating my knowledge and understanding of all aspects of childcare. I have completed Child Protection for managers and designated persons. I am passionate about ensuring that I get it right for each child in my care.
