Early Years Practitioner

I trained at the Arts Educational Trust School, studying drama, ballet, tap, singing and modern dance. My initial experience working with 9MN was as a peripatetic Music Teacher once a week. However, when the opportunity arose to join as a full time practitioner I was thrilled. My background as a registered childminder, nursery practitioner and owner of a pre-school music group named ‘Top of the Tots’ enabled me to fit right in. I now feel I have the very best job in the world, combining my two grand passions in life – entertainment and a love of children. One of the greatest things I gave my own family was the ability to express themselves and to take part. Now I help other children do the same. When I see those eager, bright faces looking up at me in the nursery environment, I tell myself that I have had more than my fair share. I am very much looking forward to gaining my level 3 in Childcare, so that I feel confident in the latest early years research which I can put into practice in my work with the children.
