I work in the tots room at Salford Quays – I’ve been here for 8 months and in that time I’ve had an in-depth induction and lots of training. I love coming to work because the great staff make me feel welcome and the practice here is outstanding. Kids Planet are always offering me new learning opportunities – they want me to work my way up the company ladder. My management team are amazing and they are always looking for ways to support me.
During my apprentice journey I have become more passionate about working with children and grab every opportunity I can to gain more experience within an outstanding early years setting. Whilst working I have learnt to adapt to any situation and have been supporting parents throughout their child’s journey with us. But my biggest achievement is the knowledge that I have gained. I am now able to give each child the best start in life.
I have enjoyed doing my level 3. I feel like I have gained so much out of doing it. I know I received a nomination for apprentice of the year earlier this year. I now feel I understand legislations and the EYFS a lot more and what is expected. My practice has improved due to having more confidence with sharing ideas and views and also implementing them in Pre-school. My tutor, Lynne has supported and guided me through everything and answered all my questions I needed answering and she was always positive. From finishing my Level 3 I was then promoted to Senior and now I have become Room leader of Pre-School.
