All About Me
Hi my name is Faith and I am 25 years old. I have a foundation degree in Early years, playwork and education and have been working with children from the age of 15 years old. I started teaching dance lessons to children in secondary school at the school I attended, then went onto college to complete my diploma level 3 in childcare. I then went straight into working with children at a nursery and worked my way up to room leader and third in charge after a year of being there. After working there for 2 and half years I decided I wanted to go to univeristy to study my foundation degree, to which I then had to leave that setting and begin working elsewhere so I could attend university twice a week and still work full time. I am still in this setting now but think it is time for me to try something new. At the moment, whilst working 36.5 hours a week, 4 days a week at a private montessori nursery, I also nanny for a little boy, aged 3 and a half on a Thursday every week as well as babysitting most weekends and the odd evening here and there. I have been looking after him since he was 5 months old and I have loved watching and helping him grow into the wonderful boy he is now.
I consider myself to be a reliable, presentable and punctual person, highly motivated with a sunny disposition. I am an extremely hard working individual who can work well as part of a team or alone. I am responsible when set a task and ask for guidance when in any doubt.
I have very high expectations of myself and endeavour to give my very best in every situation.
I have an outgoing personality, good interpersonal skills and the ability to work in a multi-national team environment with confidence and minimal supervision. Comfortable woring in a fast paced environment and able to build and maintain good relationships with work colleagues and others through a genuine desire to understand their needs and support them.

Tasks that Faith can help with
From 01-2012 Until 04-2014
First year as a nursery assistant in the baby room and the second year as a room leader in the 2-3 year old room as well as third in charge. Being third in charge involved taking minutes during staff meetings, ensuring the routine is being followed on a daily basis, keeping ratios in place, being in charge of the nursery when the manager and deputy were absent and looking after 8 other members of staff.
From 04-2014 To day
My job responsibilities include working with the children; currently having 14 key children to work closely with and observe. This includes keeping up to date with their learning journey folders, changing nappies and encouraging independence from a young age. It also involves having a professional parent partnership, running the room on a daily basis as a team player and safeguarding children at all times.
I attended Anglia Ruskin Univeristy to study a foundation degree in Early years, playwork and education to which I passed. I currently work in a private montessori nursery with children aged 0 to 6 years old and I love it. Working with children is what I have always wanted to do and I wouldn't change it for the world. I enjoy attending work out classes, swimming and socialising with my friends, family and my partner.
