Lollipops in 2012 embarking on my level 2 qualification joining the nursery team, soon I progressed with training gaining a Level 3 in Early Years.
I gained experience and knowledge of special educational needs and disabilities learning and how
to meet a variety of children’s needs, working in partnership with a variety of professionals and learning how to advise and support individual children and their families.
After several years I was given a new roe - Baby unit deputy and joined the team caring for our under two's.
At first it was a challenge! Now I love working with the babies and have become Lead Practitioner of the baby unit.
passionate about giving our babies a loving, nurturing and safe place to grow. Each of the four rooms have been carefully created to stimulate young minds. We have created a rich, friendly accessible environment that will meet every child's individual needs, from cosy corners for young ones needing a rest between play to vibrant and sensual play areas for our babies on the go.
I believe babies need routine and we are able to follow individual babies routines planning for their needs, nurturing their development and safeguarding their learning helping each individual baby become a competent learner.
Soon I will be completing my SENCO cert 1 training and look forward to taking over the role of nursery SENCO.

Early Years Practitioner
I joined Lollipops just after I left school, since being here I have gained my Level 3 childcare qualification along with confidence, knowledge and a very good relationship with the team and children I have worked with.
Lollipops is a very happy, fun and loving place to work and I enjoy everyday that I'm here helping the children learn new things and develop. I originally started on the nursery floor but recently I have joined the baby unit and taken on a new role as second in charge and I love it just as much as the nursery floor.
Each day I aim to bring lots of fun, excitement and nice activities as well as a loving and nurturing feel for the children.
Early years Practitioner
Having experience as a Scout leader I decided to join Lollipops and start my apprenticeship Level 2 joining the baby unit team.
A year on and I have qualified Level 2 and I'm embracing on my level 3 to expand and deepen my childcare knowledge.
I have learnt so much already, not just from the team but the children too!
I enjoy supporting the children to achieve and watching them learn a skill for the first time, their whole face lights up with pleasure and pride and being part of that is really rewarding.
I have recently joined Lollipops starting on an apprenticeship Level 2 in early years and have learned loads already.
Working in the baby unit is fun. I am looking forward to developing my relationships with the children, their families and the team.
