I am a highly motivated and diligent individual, who has previously worked as a Teaching assistant in secondary schools in the local area and recently completed a Batchelors Degree (level 6) in Education. My role at Neverland is an early years practitioner. This opportunity is extremely valuable to me as a mother of two.

Aimee O'Donoghue

I come from a large family with strong discipline and responsibilities from cooking to caring for younger siblings. This has all contributed to me being able to work quickly and to a high standard of care. In my spare time I volunteer as a youth helper in my local community and child-mind. This has helped me to build on my people skills and taught me the value of communication and how important it is to create a positive environment.
