I obtained my NNEB (level 3 in childcare) in 1995 and have always worked with children. My first job was as a private nanny in London and I have also worked in a private daycare environment. I have worked for Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council and private companies delivering childcare. My greatest experience comes from being a Mum to my own 2 children and a second mum to the countless number of children I have provided high quality childcare for over the past 12 years.
