Clever Clogs – Helen

Helen Wressell gave up a “mundane” office job to become an Early Years Practitioner and “make a difference.”

Rachael Bland is no stranger to Clever Clogs having worked previously in the nursery, so we were delighted to welcome her back recently.

She first joined in 2017 and now, whilst studying for a degree in business management, she has returned to work on a part-time basis in our after-school/holiday club.

This includes picking up the children from school and bringing them back to the nursery for wraparound care and in the school, holidays putting on activities for children up to the age of 11.

Beth, 28, started at Clever Clogs in January 2022 and works as a Senior Practitioner in our Little Owls room for children aged 3-5.

She says: “It’s lovely seeing how much the children develop at this age and knowing you are making a difference. There are not many other jobs where you can say that.”
