Cover Letter

I have an Associate Diploma in Early Childhood and have worked with children for the last 26 years. I have worked with a range of special needs children, in various positions, including Autism, Aspergers, Vision Impairment, Down Syndrome, Epilepsy, allergies, developmental delays, behavioural and mobility issues. I have previously worked in Wee Care which includes maintenance and care for a range of children from feeding to personal hygiene and day to day duties which included some early childhood education.

I have also been running the kitchen in my current centre for the past year and before that on and off for another 2 years. This has included doing the meal planning, shopping lists, prepping meals, cooking meals and baking snacks, delivering meals to 8 different classrooms, running to a timetable for meal distribution and handling food health and safety paperwork etc.

I am easy to get on with, am enthusiastic, encouraging, patient, compassionate and am also well able to work within a team environment. I am able to get on with professionals, teachers, parents and peers of all varying abilities and ages.

I am willing to undergo further training, attend workshops and learn in whatever field is required. My computer and technology skills are adequate but if they need updating I am also willing to undergo further training for these.

I am able to encourage social interactions and provide assistance as required and withdraw when appropriate to enable and encourage independence. I have a broad skill set that I am willing to expand and further to be able to support and encourage any child who I assist.

My drive and passion is to see children of all levels of ability be able to reach their full potential physically, socially, emotionally and educationally.

Thank you for taking the time to read through my profile for your consideration and I look forward to having the opportunity to meet with you in person.
