Justyna is one of our Room Leaders and also the Nursery SENDCO (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Co-ordinator).
She started at the nursery in 2018 as an apprentice with a Level 2 qualification in Childcare, having experienced junior roles and placements in various nurseries and pre-schools. She completed her Level 3 in summer 2019. Since then Justyna has gone from strength to strength and had a promotion to Room Leader shortly after. She took on the role of the SENDCO in 2019 and has completed many courses and training programmes relating to SEND. With her expertise growing in this area, she will soon be a specialist in dealing with Autism after she completes an upcoming course. She is also doing a Team Leader course to further progress in her role.
Justyna is a Polish national and speaks Polish and English fluently. She has learnt Spanish since working at the nursery and now speaks it to an intermediate level.
The nursery has a social committee responsible for organising all staff events, and Justyna forms part of this along with two of her colleagues. She has Paediatric First Aid Training along with Designated Safeguarding Lead Training.
A lady of many talents, she is also a qualified beauty technician and loves to travel the world.
Justyna said: "I am so proud to be part of this team, and I can't wait to see what the future holds for me here. I love doing what I do with the children as I get to see them grow and develop, seeing them meet their goals is amazing. I love seeing the smiles on their faces every morning, and to me my job is almost a hobby as it is something I truly enjoy".
