I am an ambitious and passionate Teesside University graduate with significant experience in Psychology and Education studies.
I have pertinent experience within the childcare sector working within numerous positions from sixteen years of age. At sixteen I was fortunate to find myself in a role working for a large company known as the 'Wacky Warehouse' as a play assistant where I won numerous awards for the company. At 17 I had the opportunity to work abroad in Dubai for the summer as a Teaching Assistant within 'British Orchard Nursery school'.
My experience within the practical module of my BTEC within this sector includes working with:
Babies at 'Playday's' day Nursery, Newton Aycliffe. Within this placement I worked with babies from 6 weeks-18 months..
Toddlers at 'House of Eden' Day Nursery, Rushyford. This placement required me to work with toddlers aged 18 months-3 years. Foundation stage at 'Dodmire' Primary School, Darlington.
Key stage one at 'Dodmire' Primary School, Darlington.
Additional needs at 'Abbey Road' Primary School, Darlington. Within this position I worked closely with a young girl in ks1.
In my spare time I am involved in voluntary work for an organisation called 'Unite' working closely with their anger management team. 'Unite' is a voluntary mediation organisation who also works closely with children who need anger management training. I also have relevant, recent voluntary experience within a sure start run nursery school.
Furthermore I have also cared for two young children on a regular basis from birth, who are now aged seven and nine, planning and carrying out many educationally fun activities. Over the past few years I have also cared for a teenage boy who has klinefelter's syndrome and moderate learning difficulties.
My work and education has aided in developing my interpersonal skills. I am extremely patient and have excellent communication and my warmth and enthusiasm enables me to empathise well with others.
