Hello, my name is Gemma and I'm currently on maternity leave.
 
I've been working at Exbourne Pre-school two days a week and the other three days, I work at North Tawton Community Primary School and Nursery.

I have worked in childcare since I left school in 2010, I was lucky enough to do my Level 2 and 3 vocational training at North Tawton Nursery as well as gaining experience in various childcare settings. 

 
My fiancé Joe and I are super excited to be new parents ourselves with our little girl. I have two dogs who I love taking for walks on the Moor in my spare time.
 
I enjoy working in the preschool and loved to help make the day fun for the children by planning exciting and stimulating activities for them. Watching the children develop and grow over their time at the preschool is rewarding.

Qualification:

​"I am qualified NVQ Level 3 in childcare and have undertaken many different courses such as food and hygiene, paediatric first aid, safeguarding etc since completing my level 3 in September 2015."
