What is your first childhood memory?

I was 3 and going on holiday with my mummy, daddy, nanny & grandad.  We had a caravan and a tent, I remember spending all day at the seaside, building sandcastles and then being very excited to go back and eat in the tent. It felt like a big adventure!

When you were little what did you hope to do when you grew up?

I remember I wanted to be a nurse or a teacher, then when I was older I did work experience in an early years class in a school and that was it my mind was made up.  I was going to work in early years and inspire young children to learn.

Tell us a little about your career to date...

As a student I completed a placement in a private day nursery, I then took a part-time job with them while i studied towards my Level 2 7 3 qualifications.  I continued to study and gain practical experience though my job until I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Studies.  I stayed on after graduating, working with 2-3 year olds until I made the move to Bedale and took up my role at Incy Wincy's.

Is there one activity you particularly enjoy during the nursery day?

I like joining in with role play it may be a pretend bear hunt, train ride or visit to the seaside; there is no limit on children's imagination.

What was your favourite toy when you were younger?

Jess's top tip... children need to be on the go and having fun to learn the most, don't assume they are learning just because they are sitting still!
