I completed my NVQ Level 3 in Childcare and Development in 1997, gaining experience in a range of environments and settings. I settled in private daycare, becoming a Senior Nursery Officer, then Officer in Charge of a small but fast-growing nursery group. Whilst working in the setting, I also qualified as a D32/33 skills assessor enabled me to guide other students through their own NVQ’s. This in turn led to a full-time position within the training company I had trained with.
These days I’m lucky enough to combine my love of childcare with my other passion, cooking, being able to provide for the children’s dietary needs and nutrition as well as spending time in the rooms as a practitioner.
