Level 3 Childcare
My Pavilion journey started as a parent volunteer, and then formally joined team in 2016. I have a background in administration but have found the transition to working with young children natural and easy, as I am so passionate about getting things right for children in their early years.
I have three children and it was through my son attending that Pavilion became so familiar to me as a regular parent helper. My son loved coming to preschool and as he required additional support, I always found it particularly important that all children are treated as individuals and that their needs must be met on that basis as his were at Pavilion. I could see the staff were absolutely dedicated to the children. The atmosphere here is lovely and the children are very happy – the environment is an extension of home. Pavilion provided everything I would demand as a parent, so I was happy to join the team.
I love the great outdoors as I believe playing outside is beneficial for our children’s health. I love walking, gardening and growing my own veg, so the garden area at preschool is ideal for me to encourage the children to grow their own green fingers. It’s therapeutic and calming, so seeing a child eat something they have grown with their own hands, whilst getting mucky and a wearing a big smile, is one of life’s simplest pleasures for me!
