“My name is Vanessa, I have been working with Cheeky Cherubs for almost three years. It is amazing to think it has been that long and every minute is worth it. Cheeky Cherubs have three centres and I have been very lucky to experience all three. When I graduated from Early Childhood Studies in UCC I was ready and excited to put my knowledge in to practice. A lot of that was in fact due to completing my placement in Cheeky Cherubs Ballincollig. I had learned so much from working alongside a great team.
One of the best advantages of working with this company is the fact you can experience all rooms and age groups. I began doing relief work and, in my opinion, this was the best way to start. I got to meet everyone and see how the ethos of the company was followed throughout all the centres. As I have been with the company, I have seen roles and responsibilities change, grow and develop. I have worked with great managers, lovely staff members and with bosses who do not hide away in the office but take an interest in the staff and the children. Cheeky Cherubs has not only helped me become a good teacher, it has shown me life skills. I began as a relief staff member and I am now the Team Lead in the Infant and Wobbler Room in the Cork City Centre.”
