We are there for your child and you

Our work has one clear focus: your child's individual needs. In order for us to support your child's development in the best possible way, we employ people with different educational training backgrounds. They all attend regular further training courses, which enable them to bring new ideas and proposals to their daily work - ideas that will also benefit your child!

Catherine Smith

EYE Apprentice

Im Catherine, Williams big sister! I also have 3 other siblings who I live with along with my mam. Ever since studying Health and social care in high school, I have been interested in childcare. Leaving school was hard, I didn’t know what I was going to do. I applied for college then soon realised I didn’t want to be stuck in a classroom, so I applied for an apprenticeship in childcare. This was the best decision I ever made.

Catherine joined CKC at the end of September 2021. 

Elizabeth Haslam

EYE Apprentice

Elizabeth joined CKC at the beginning of September 2021. She is already level 2 qualified and joins us as a level 3 apprentice. Elizabeth is also our new SENCO.

Elizabeth lives with her partner and her son, in her spare time she enjoys reading.
