My name is Martyna Bak, my journey in childcare began over 8 years ago, I was extremely fortunate to explore a range of roles within the sector. Key Person, Room Leader, Deputy Manager and Area SENCO. All of which allowed me to learn and develop skills to support children in achieving their early learning goals.
My passion for inclusive practice and special educational needs developed at an early age. Through supporting my brother in developing early communication skills.
Joining a nursery setting really inspired me to learn more about special educational needs and the role of SENCO (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) I have since attended many training programmes, focused on positive behaviour management, Autism Awareness, Supporting children with speech, language, and communication difficulties, Global developmental delay and Down’s Syndrome.
The part that I enjoy most about working with children is being able to enhance their learning by taking a child-centred approach. I enjoy taking children’s lead on topics/projects and delivering exciting, educational circle times and activities.
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking for family and friends and organising
gatherings/events, caring for my collection of house plants and spending time with my family.
I speak Polish and English and, I am trained in Makaton signs and symbols.
I feel honoured to be introduced as the nursery manager for this outstanding provision, I look forward to welcoming you to Katey’s Nursery & Preschool.
