NVQ3: Extended Diploma in Early Years Childcare
Hi my name is Abby, I have worked for Discovery Vine Breakfast Club at Brindle Gregson Lane since February 2016, I also work at St Joseph’s Pre-school too. I have my NVQ Level 3 Extended Diploma in Early Years Childcare.
I have worked at Brindle Gregson Lane Primary School since 2010. I work as a Catering assistant at the school and also as a play worker for Discovery Vine After-School Club. As I have worked at the school for the last five years I feel confident that I know the children well.
My role at the after-school club involves preparing and organizing activities such as baking, craft activities, painting and general outdoor type activities.
At the after-school club we endeavour to be flexible in our approach to help and support all our children. As a staff team we are enthusiastic, conscientious, committed, respectful and have good child care skills and we are eager to do well for the children who attend the after-school club.
I am a Playworker for Discovery Vine currently based at Brindle Gregson Lane School. I have been a Playworker for almost four years now and I am very lucky to know the children so well because I also work as a Teaching Assistant at the same school. I have been a Teaching Assistant at B G L for almost 7 years and in that time gained lots of experience. I currently work in Year 4 and enjoy it thoroughly.
NVQ 3: Children and Young People's Workforce
I have worked with children since 2009 in nurseries and before and after school clubs. I also, help with Rainbows. I enjoy arts, crafts, poetry, reading and camping.
