Annabelle Sargeant (Bella)
I hold a degree in Early Childhood Studies (BA, hons) and have always had a passion for high quality child care and worked in childcare roles throughout my working life.
I have gained experience working across a wide range of settings and ages in primary schools, a kumon centre, childminding, nannying, as an activity play leader and as a nursery practitioner.
I feel that positive childhood experiences during this crucial stage within each child's life is imperative to their overall healthy development and has a life long impact upon each individual child and so I am very aware of the responsibility we as practitioners have to each child to provide the best experience possible.
I am also currently studying psychotherapeutic counselling (advanced diploma) part time, which has so far provided me with a deeper insight of the importance of sharing in each child's experience to build upon their self esteem, the importance of positive language and interactions with each child and the role of active listening.
I am very excited to be given the opportunity to join an amazing team and an outstanding setting and can't wait to get to know everyone!.
