Hi, my name is Caitlin and I have just completed my level 3 qualification and started full-time working at Monkey Puzzle Marleigh. Previous to this, I worked at Monkey Puzzle Grange Rd for a year completing placement hours whilst attending college. Since being one of the eldest in my family, I always enjoyed spending time with younger family members and creating different activities for us to do which led me to being interested in childcare as a career.
During my experience with Monkey Puzzle, I have learnt new skills which has implemented my practice, developed positive, secure attachments with children as well as working with wonderful, supportive teams of Early Years Educators. I enjoy supporting children to learn through a mixture of child-led and adult-initiated activities which meets the individual interests and developing needs of children. I work closely with colleagues to ensure that activities are set up each day. This ensures a well-planned, stimulating and enabling environment.
I am particularly interested in observing children and their schemas of learning, school readiness and safeguarding children. My next goal is to undergo more training relating to safeguarding as well as baby training courses.
