About me and my family
My name is Carol O’Kill and I live in Sunningdale with my husband Daniel and twochildren, Maddie and Max.I began my career in childcare in 1987 as a nanny in Wimbledon. I continued in this workfor many years always in the South West of London until I married and had my own babyin 1998.Myself with my family then moved to South East London where I continued to work as ananny taking my own daughter with me.In 2001 I had my second child and finally gave up work as a nanny and returned tocollege to study as a Nursery Nurse. After 18 months of hard work I qualified andreceived my Diploma in Childcare and Education N.V.Q. level 3.With this qualification I began work in an ESOL crèche in South Norwood as a nurseryassistant caring for children from 6 weeks to 3 years. The children were mainlyrefugees and many did not speak English.I moved on from this work to become a manager of an after school and holiday club inThornton Heath. I had 8 staff and 60 children within my care and to date this has beenmy most challenging position of work.Sadly I had to leave due to moving to Berkshire in 2003.I chose to work in childcare from a very young age myself and have enjoyed all the workI have undertaken.My aim is and has always been to make children within my care feel happy, comfortable,safe, secure and confident.
