I am the room leader of the Under 2's room. I enjoy caring for the little ones, planning exciting and appealing activities for them to take part in.

Level 3 Nursery Practitioner based in Willow Tree

I have been working in the pre-school environment for 12 years, 3 of these were voluntary which I fully enjoyed, learning about children's behaviour and needs. I feel pre-school is such a lovely age to build a firm and positive foundation for children where they can open thier minds to amazing things. I love being creative and following the children's plans and ideas.

Level 2 Under 2's Nursery Practitioner

Before I started at the nursery, I was a toy shop sales assistant for 4 years. I had decided that I would like a change in career and had been thinking about child care for a while. I thought I wouldnt be able to as I had no specific experiance or qualifications, until Rabbit Patch took me on as a level 2 apprentice.

I absolutely love all the children and helping their imagination run wild with games and role play.
