Keyworker Letter

My name is Catrin Timms, mainly known as Cat at Sandy Bears. I am 25 years old and have recently bought a house not far from Tattenhall with my partner. I have a degree in Childhood Studies and am currently working towards my level 5 in leadership and management.
I started working at Sandy Bears in May 2017 and my time here so far has been amazing! I work mostly in Bear Cubs with Sophie, Alice and Eboni who are all doing a great job at showing me how things are done here! I absolutely love the Bear Cubs room with the children ages 0-2years because I feel as though I’m part of giving them the best start in life, which is a very special feeling. Whether its painting, jigsaws, messy play, wooden toys or walks/trips around the village the Bear Cubs are always having fun.
I have recently met a few of my key children who are absolutely adorable. I have really enjoyed my time so far bonding with them in order to make them feel safe and content. Bonding with parents/family members is equally as important to me. I would like to get to know your child’s likes/dislikes and routines at home before they start at Sandy Bears so that I can make their first day/future as familiar and fun-filled as it can be. Being a key worker means that I get to watch your child take part in activities that enhance their development and encourage them to meet their milestones! I will be responsible for tracking your child’s individual progress and I promise to take plenty of notes/pictures and videos so that you all as a family don’t miss out on those special moments.
Some facts for you to know about me...
My favourite-

I’m already excited to meet your little cub and becoming their ‘special person’.
Looking forward to meeting you…See you soon J
