I started off at Happy Feet doing my apprenticeship which led me to gain my level 2 and level 3 qualification. I have been with Happy Feet now for many years now. I have gained lots of experience since working here, as well as completing online courses. This has led to me becoming Room Leader of the Pre-School room, PANCO, Deputy Health and Safety officer and recently been promoted to third in charge. I am also first aid trained and have recently done a refresher course. I really enjoy working at Happy Feet as it is a lovely small setting, which enables us to get to know the children inside and out. It is lovely to work with such a friendly team, it makes us feel like one big family. I also find it very rewarding being able to watch the children learn and grow throughout their time here.

Watching the children grow over the time they're here and helping them get ready for that next step in life is why this job is so rewarding.
