Tell us something about yourself:

I’ve been working in childcare for just over a year. I was studying Business at University when I realised it wasn’t for me. My calling was for the childcare/teaching industry.

What inspired you to work in childcare?

My inspiration to work in childcare came from watching my mother teach during my childhood. She has an amazing ability to nurture and educate young minds. It also brought me pleasure to see the excitement and the confidence a child gains through the support and encouragement of their teacher.

What goals do you hope to achieve through your traineeship?

Upon completion of my traineeship I wish to go back to University and study Early Childhood and Primary school teaching. Working collaboratively with parents and educators to make the youngest and most important years of children’s lives memorable and enjoyable is what I strive for.
