I love the bonds you create with staff children and their parents throughout their time with us. When I started, I needed a lot of support with all of the policies, went on lots of training and found many opportunities within the setting to help me progress. When I became a Level 3 it had taught me so much which allowed me to put this into place with my day to day practise. An Early Years career requires you to work hard and you need to look at the more difficult days as a learning curve. Make the most out of the children’s days by teaching them everything you can. Always go in with a positive mind set and enjoy every moment because you will have so much fun. We can’t wait to hear from you soon! Safeguarding Statement .
