Hello, my name is Azariah, you will see me most days in the baby area.
I love working at little squirrels with such an amazing team and the children are amazing and full of personalities. I love working with the children, helping them from the start of their development, to become such brilliant characters.
I am working towards my Level 3 Early Years Educator diploma. I started working at Little Squirrels as part of my placement at college earlier in the year, but Little Squirrels gave me a great opportunity to get my qualification as an apprentice in December 2019 and I will complete this, within this year.
I work in child care as I love supporting children to grow. I wish to give children a valuable start in life by providing great education and amazing people to support them, in a safe and caring environment.
I love my job as I love to see the children’s look when they are so proud and confident when they achieve something new, I couldn’t be more thankful to be a part of their achievements as they develop.
In my free time I enjoy drawing portraits. I love spending time with my cat miles. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends and going for long walks or eating amazing new food with them.
What the staff team say about me:
Azariah is a super quick learner! Great at caring for the children
What the management team says about me:
Azariah come to us as part of a placement and straight away we could see she was a natural with all the children. She shows care and concern for all the children and has spent time getting to know them and developing bonds. She is a quick learner and has fitted in well in the team
