From leaving school I attended collage to train as a hairdresser. I joined Claremont in Dec 2009 as lunch time and holiday cover and once I had qualified as a Level 3 hairdresser I decided to change my vocation and embarked on an apprenticeship for my Level 3 diploma in childcare.

I was given a permanent position and was promoted to Room Leader in June 2014. I have continued to attend training courses through the Early Years/Starting Life Well teams to ensure my knowledge and experience of changes in childcare is up-to-date. I have had experience working with all the age ranges within the nursery. I work full time.

I still practice my hairdressing skills and do many of the staff’s hair. I can also cut the children’s hair with parental consent when we have hair cut days. I enjoy supporting the children’s ICT skills. I enjoy spending time with family and friends and socialising.
