After leaving high school, Sam went to college to complete her CACHE Level 3 in early years and childcare, having always wanted to work with children. She started at Hollies Daycare Nursery as a Nursery Nurse and then worked her way up to become Deputy Manager.
Question 1: Why did you go into childcare?
I’ve always had a passion for working with children, to help them develop and grow into independent thinkers and learners.
Question 2: What do you get up to in a typical day?
We plan a lot of activities to give children first-hand experiences that they might not get at home, which focus on all individual needs to help them develop physically, mentally and emotionally.
Question 3: What’s the most rewarding part of the job?
Knowing you’re giving the children a flying start in life, and a safe and warm environment to help them learn, grow and develop.
