My name is Bonnie Mae Holmes and I am 23 years old. I have three brothers and two sisters aged between 14 and 27. I live in Hundon with my dad and my two younger brothers, and qualified as a childcare practitioner in 2010.
Whilst studying at Samuel Ward Arts and Technology College I gained childcare qualifications at levels 2 and 3. Over the course of those 4 years I carried out work experience within many settings catering for children aged 3-8 years. My last placement was here at Sandcastles which I thoroughly enjoyed and so was delighted when Janette offered me a full-time position. I have been working here for five years now and I am enjoying it immensely. I completed a level 4 SENCO qualification in 2013 and would like to further my career in the future and undertake a childcare degree.
Outside of work I like to socialise with friends and family. I also spend time watching sport, particularly football. We are a very sporting family!
I hope you and your child enjoy the time you spend here with us at Sandcastles.
