Over the past 27 years I have dedicated my working life to children and their families. For the past 17 years of my career, I have been a Deputy Manager in a busy children's nursery.
I have gained valuable leadership qualities which I use on a daily basis to encourage the team I work with to focus on tasks and produce good quality work. I have learned about the main principles of the " Getting it right for every child" agenda and I am familiar with the wellbeing indicators.
I am used to working in a key person system making good quality observations providing depth and balance to children's learning. I believe in a pedagogical approach of open-ended resources in a rich natural learning environment.
I am very confident in planning, organising challenging play experiences underpinned by the pre-birth to three and curriculum for excellence guidelines.
I pride myself in my organisational skills and very much enjoy supporting and motivating staff to succeed.
