Tell us about your previous experience...

I worked in two other nursery settings as well as school settings, and have experience of working with children from three months up to six years. Over the years, I've worked with children with a variety of special educational needs and disabilities, providing one to one support when needed.  I appreciate the trust parents have in us, particularly when they have a concern about how their child will cope at pre-school or with their early development.  I aim to provide as much reassurance as I can to families throughout the time they are with us and know the best way to learn is for us and the children to have fun.

Why did you choose to come and work at Incy Wincy's?

I chose to work for Incy Wincy's because after going along to a few different interviews, it was Incy Wincy's that gave me a feeling of warmth.  Meeting some of the staff when I looked around, I immediately felt welcome and wanted to be part of this team.

What makes you smile?

My daughter Nicole.  I love spending time with her, making things and painting pictures together.

What is your favourite children's book?

My favourite book is 'Matilda'.  I remember reading this at school and how, once I had finished it, I wanted to read lots more books just like it.
