I started with Oakfield ELC officially on 1st October 2013 but I had been working with them from July 2013 onwards.
How did your start ?
I started with Oakfield from a recommendation from Dusyme who are one of my clients that offer resources and furnishing for children. They are a German Company. I have been working as an Early Years Consultant for the past eight years. By profession I am a British primary school teacher.
What are the different services that you propose ?
We offer a variety of services from Academic education for Foundation 1 & 2 through to day care for children from 0 months to 5 years.
In September we hope to be offering Breast Feeding Classes for mums, classes to train nannies in basic hygenie and child care as well as homework and tuition for children over five years.
Why should we use your service ?
They will be run by professional people a nurse and a teacher both mature (not old !!!) but with a wealth of experience and very well qualified.
Explain to us in a few words your job as a « mum-entrepreneur » ?
I am now a grand mum having two grandchildren, my own children are mid to late thirties. I believe in offering a service to help young children make the most of their childhood. They grow up so quickly and we are responsible to make sure these young children turn into well adjusted adults and in doing so making the most of playtime experiences.
How do you find your balance between your Professional and personal life ? any advice ?
You must find time to do the things you want to do. I work at weekend but find time in the evenings to play Bridge, meet with friends, do exercise classes. This is very important to get a balance between work and time for yourself. You have to prioritize what is important and realise that somethings can wait.
