I started my journey with Lullaby Lane two months ago and I can honestly say it has been such an exciting and enjoyable experience.

I was quite nervous about coming back into the world of work after having taken time out to raise my family, but that feeling was short lived and the transition was an easy one, as the team at Lullaby Lane are so friendly and hugely supportive.

They made me feel like part of the team right away and within a couple of weeks, I was invited to join numerous training opportunities including a teams meeting with Dr. Suzanne Zeedyk about the theory of attachment. I found this session to be extremely informative and interesting. This opportunity helped me greatly to understand the value behind attachment led practice including how it benefits child development and the ways in which we can implement it into the early years setting.

I have also been appointed a mentor to support me through my journey who has already helped me with so much. My mentor is super kind and supportive and a constant point of contact if I have any questions or need guidance.

As a mother of two school age boys, the most daunting things for me to consider about returning to work were the work-life balance and childcare dilemmas. However, Lullaby Lane offered me hours to work around my family which has made it so much easier for me to return to work. The hours I do mean I can do school drop offs and pick ups and work while my boys are in school.

The job itself is hugely rewarding and no two days are the same. The children are all amazing and it’s a pleasure to be working with them. I have two children of my own and nothing brings me more joy than seeing kids laugh and have fun!

I am currently working towards my SVQ apprenticeship. At first, I experienced feelings of trepidation and I worried I would struggle as I have been out of education for quite some time but my assessor is so friendly and approachable and has helped me through every stage of the process.

After only 2 months I already feel I have gained so much knowledge & confidence thanks to the continuous training and hands on experience that I have received. I am thoroughly enjoying my time at Lullaby Lane as an apprentice and am looking forward to the future path ahead!
