EARLY YEARS PRACTITIONER IN THE HIVE
Hi, I'm Lisa!
I joined Free Rangers in January 2019 and I work in the Hive.
I qualified in 2005 with a level 3 BTEC National Diploma and started my childcare career that summer. Since then I have worked in various nurseries and children's centres looking after children aged between 7 weeks and 11 years old. Working in these different settings has given me a vast experience of supporting children and their families to grow.
I enjoy working within the early years, because I love to see children change as they develop. I find it exciting when a child reaches a new milestone.
I am looking forward to seeing more of the Free Rangers approach and learning new skills from the additional activities that are offered here.
