Hello my name is Diana and I have been working as a flexible support staff member since April 2017. My professional experience looking after children started when I was 20 and I took part in the 'Au Pair in America' scheme. I was responsible for 2 boys aged 2 and 5 over a year-long placement. Several years later I started a family and decided to become a child minder while raising my family. During this time I took part in a two-year program to enhance my childcare skills. I completed a course known as DCP (Developing Child Minding Practice) and ECP (Extended Child Minding Practice). Since working at BCoT nursery I have completed Paediatric First Aid and Food Hygiene training.
