Kathryn says
“After completing my Girl Guiding qualification I soon realised that childcare was the career path for me. I have volunteered at a Brownie group in Oakdale for over 10 years and I used the skills gained to help me complete my apprenticeship at a Nursery school in Poole. I then went on to achieve my NVQ Level 3 in Childcare at Poole College.
“My Son attended Pinocchio’s and I have been heavily involved in the running of the pre school as a member of the Committee. When he started school I was looking for a new challenge and so I became a member of the team here at Pinocchio’s. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first year, helping many children develop both socially and academically in preparation for their transition to primary school.
In my spare time I enjoy swimming and spending time with family and friends”
Kathryn’s life motto is
Everyone smiles in the same language
