Rebecca Baker

I began my journey at Buzzee Beez Pre-school at 2 years old as a Buzzee bee myself. At that time my mum was a preschool worker, she is now the manager. Throughout my childhood and secondary school life, I would often help out and come into the preschool whenever I could. I really enjoyed helping out and when the opportunity arose, I left College & decided to start a childcare career. In September 2017 I began my l3 childcare apprenticeship. I really enjoy my job and I have a passion for working with SEND children.  Knowing I can make a difference in all children's lives is important to me.

I have completed many courses throughout my years working in childcare. I'm passionate about making a difference and helping every child reach their goals and have fun whilst learning. having worked for Buzzee Beez previously, I'm excited about returning to this setting where I started when my daughter attended eight years ago.
