Spotlight on Staff…Anita

Spotlight on Staff...Anita

Meet our wonderful Anita!

Based at our Alwoodley setting we have our own little pocket rocket – who goes by the name Anita. She describes herself as fun, caring and bubbly – and we 100% agree!

Anita’s enthusiasm is infectious, she leads our out-of-school club with passion and commitment. This is recognised by both her team, parents and children as she regularly receives such lovely feedback.

Anita has been with us for a whopping 17 years, she started her childcare career initially volunteering at the youth-club her son attended, soon enough they offer her a job as a paid youth worker and Anita’s skills in childcare were recognised. Anita went on to complete her formal qualification both in Playwork and Leadership.

“The best thing about working for Little People is that it’s a nice family run business that tries to supports all employees on a personal level and its pleasure to work for the company.

My funniest memories are getting involved in the children’s end of term party and having more fun than the children.”

Our parents say…

“She is just fabulous… I love her and my boys love her”

“She is always there for you if you need to talk about your child good and bad! She interacts with the kids on their level and has fun with them but also knows when to draw the line. Amazing lady.”

“Anita is always friendly and is great with the kids.”

“I am a full time working mum with 2 children at St Paul’s Funclub. Anita has been there since my son was in Reception and he is now in Year 6! To know that your children are well cared for and looked after is what allows me to go and do my job every day. If I could not rely on Anita and all the staff I would struggle with my day to day life even more. Because of her professionalism and dedication she always knows what clubs are happening, she deals with the children in a firm but fair way and always communicates with me as a parent in an open and honest way about my children. She also seems to do all these things because she genuinely enjoys her job! Thank you for all these things!”

“Anita is caring and understanding.”

“Anita is such a lovely lady. She is always so happy with the children and they have fun. Due to personal changes I was in need of another morning and Anita has done absolutely everything to accommodate this. Nothing is ever too much trouble. She leads a great team.”

“Anita and her team look after our children very well, they are very friendly, approachable, and always happy to help. Our children enjoy the vast variety of activities on offer, both indoor and outdoor, and Anita and her team always think of new and interesting things to try! Also, we really appreciate that the team are happy to pick up the children after their various after school activities or school trips, which often finish at different times. Many thanks for everything! X”

“I would like to acknowledge Anita’s dedication and commitment at St. Paul’s she is always friendly helpful and willing to assist wherever possible a valuable member of your team”
