I had been working in retail for many years and decided I would like to change my career path. I did some volunteer work at a child care centre and found that my love for working with children grew each time I was with them……..I felt like I had found my real passion! Kim Adams was my trainer and she supported me through my studies the whole way.
Thank again Rachael [Williams] for everything! You were such a brilliant help, a great support and an even better trainer. I always feel so welcomed and supported when I come into Kath Dickson Family Centre. I will definitely be recommending Kath Dickson to any friends in the future for their studies!
