Client Success Story: Kiara
Kiara started her Internship at Footsteps Nursery, Oswestry in September 2018. This placement is ideal for Kiara as she loves the idea of working with young children. She has had work experience with children before where she decided it would be her career aim.
Kiara has settled very quickly into the Kinder Room, where she works with children aged between three and five years old.
The staff have been impressed with how well Kiara helps the children in the daily routine of the Nursery. During structured activities – free play, snack and dinner time – Kiara is growing in confidence and becoming more independent. Her calm nature is especially noticeable when she supports new children.
Kiera’s Job Coaches have been delighted to see Kiara’s progress; highlighting her attentiveness in particular, and the fact that she is fully engaged in all she does. It is fabulous to see how natural Kiara is with the children.
Another great step forward for Kiara is how well she is developing communication skills, this allows her to show her intelligence and both Enable staff and her colleagues at the nursery can see how brilliantly motivated she is.
To the pleasure of her family, Kiara is full of stories about her day when she gets home. Everyone has said how good it is to see her so happy and talkative.
Initially Kiara was working three half days a week to build up her strength.
Kiara manages the planning of her own breaks by talking to staff in the Nursery.
On a recent trip out, Kiara helped to escort the children to a local Care Home for a Harvest Festival celebration. There were songs and Harvest presents for the pleasure of the residents. All in all it was a fabulous experience.
