I have been in childcare since 1998. I joined Claremont as a volunteer and then became a full time member of staff. I gained my NVQ Level 3 qualification in March 2008 and achieved NVQ Level 4 in 2009. I have been the deputy since 2007.

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 am the lead professional for S.E.N (Special Educational Needs) and E.N.C.O (Equalities needs Co-ordinator). I work full time.

I have a son who is a qualified car bodywork specialist and also works as a gardener doing the nursery gardens. My daughter is currently taking her G.C.S.E’s. When I am not in the office you will usually find me working with the Jelly Babies and Jelly Beans downstairs. I enjoy socialising with friends and spending time with my grandchild.
