Aspire Training Team are delighted to reveal Nicole Davies from Tops Day Nurseries Stonehouse as our January 2020 Learner of the Month!
Nicole started her Level 2 Early Years qualification in June 2019 being taken on as a childcare apprentice within the nursery. Since being taken on she has really taken to the role, with her diligent and passionate approach to her work has really stood out not only to Manager Derry Roberts but also to deputy manager Alex Carter who both nominated her for this month.
Manager Derry Roberts commented:
“Nicole is such a hardworking and positive person. Her assessor tells me her work is all up to date and a great standard.
She takes much pride in her work and is a great support in preschool as she is able to help run the room in her room manager’s absence. She has lovely bonds with the children and strives to ensure they get the best possible experience from nursery with both care and education.
She completes all of her observations to a high standard and is a pleasure to work with.”
Deputy Manager Alex Carter mirrors Derry’s sentiments:
“Nicole is extremely hard working and shows a great passion for her career in childcare. She has kept up to date with her coursework while going above and beyond the usual responsibilities of an apprentice.
She has overcome many challenges strengthening her knowledge, experience and resilience in particular in managing challenging behaviour. She has been an exceptional member of staff with such a big heart and always puts the children first.
She enjoys learning more than just surface information and likes to look deeper at situations considering how she can help our vulnerable children (being a nursery in a particularly deprived area). Nicole’s encompasses Tops values with her passion for protecting our planet and teaching our children how to care for it too.
We are so proud of Nicole, she demonstrates great potential and we look forward to seeing her continue to progress.”
Nicole has clearly made a strong impression during her apprenticeship and we are sure she will continue to develop and show the passion we have seen so far through to the end of her apprenticeship and beyond! Therefore it is with great pride that we announce Nicole as our January 2020 Learner of the Month!
