Pre School Manager (Currently on Maternity Leave)
My name is Becci, I am manager and a key worker at Downton Pre-school. I studied childcare for 7 years as I chose to study child care at GCSE and then I went onto college to gain my Level 3 in Early Years. I also studied Psychology and worked with college students who had special educational needs. After two years I continued my studies at the University of Portsmouth where I gained a degree in Early childhood studies.
Alongside my degree I completed my Early Years Professional Status qualification too. I have experienced a range of settings within the mainstream and special needs sectors through my study placements and in a work capacity at a local infant school, where I was employed as a 1:1 worker for a child with Down’s syndrome which I thoroughly enjoyed. I love seeing how children learn and develop in their own ways and providing them with resources to help stimulate their imaginations.
I am a creative person who enjoys cooking and sports – particularly netball which I play regularly. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family and going on holidays.
