I spent 5 years working as a teaching assistant with 11-16 year olds; this was mainly on a one to one basis with children with special educational needs. For the next 3 years I worked as a teaching assistant in a local primary school working with year 2, year 4, then finally year 5/6, then I began childminding in April 2016. I absolutely love working with children and with the birth of my third child I knew I didn't want to leave her, but also didn't want to stop working with children, so a career in being a childminder seemed the perfect option. I have done lots of training in my school roles including child protection, English as an additional language, autism training, fine motor skills, I have a current paediatric first aid certificate and in my primary TA position I took individuals and small groups for phonics intervention so have training in that, but also lots of resources available I made for these interventions. I thoroughly love working with the little ones and now I've started childminding and caring for them I can't imagine doing anything else.
