I was a lawyer for 18 years before taking redundancy. As my children needed me less I decided that I would try looking after other people’s children and became a registered childminder. I found this a real pleasure and started to do more of it. When the opportunity came along to start an out of school club at our school I jumped at the chance. As a playworker I am very passionate about children’s right to play and be given the best play experience possible. All of my children attended our school, they are all thriving at secondary school having been given the best start during their primary and junior years. I wanted to give something back to the school to say thank you. I am impressed by the drive and determination of the leader of our school and hope to make a valuable contribution to the schools continuing success.
