Introducing our Baby Room Team Members
Our team members work hard to develop strong relationships not only with our children, but also with our parents. To support this we wanted to provide some background information to our Baby Room Team members. So here we introduce you to Jayana from our Whalley Range Baby Room and Abbie from our Gatley Baby and Teenie Rooms.
Jayana has a BTech Level 3 National Diploma in Early Years and has 18 years’ experience. Jayana explained that she is the eldest of six children, with 14 years between her and the youngest. She loved helping care for her younger sisters and from an early age decided that she wanted to work in childcare. Whilst she was at college her siblings were pre-school age, and so she was able to relate what she was learning to her siblings. During this time she also spent her spare time helping out with local Rainbow groups.
Jayana has primarily worked in baby rooms. She explained “I enjoy all the care routines and love to see how much babies learn and develop during their first year of life. I pride myself on looking after every baby as if they were my own, allowing parents to feel comfortable leaving their baby for the first time. My years of experience has not taken away the feeling of responsibility and care when meeting a family for the first time. It has however allowed me to grow and learn allowing me to continue to provide a safe learning environment for all.”
