I have been working in childcare for over 14 years and have worked for Naval Under Fives for almost 10 years now. I enjoy watching the children in my care grow and become independent and form friends. The children and staff at Skylark have formed a 'home from home' setting allowing children to grow from being babies at Spoonbill to moving up to Skylark and then moving onto their Infant schools. I enjoy the close contact I can form with parents and forming links with those parents away in the navy and army. I chose childcare as I had a small child of my own and the hours fitted in well with his school. I used to run a parent and toddler group which was really rewarding and then developed into working in a preschool. I have chosen preschool because of the rewards of working with 2-3 year-olds.
