Employee Journey - Tracey Stewart
All three of my children attended Stepping Stones for Families, Thistle Childcare Centre.
I kept them there despite moving out of the area as we loved the warm and welcoming family feel in the nursery.
I had always been interested in working with children and regretted not completing the course on leaving school.
It was the encouragement that I received from the Nursery Manager and Senior Childcare Worker that helped me to decide to go back to college and gain my childcare qualifications.
During my studies, I completed my placement with Stepping Stones for Families and was thrilled to begin working as a Sessional Childcare Worker gaining experience across all the Glasgow services.
I then secured a part time contract in the Go2Play project and then in Thistle Childcare Centre.
I love being a member of staff in Thistle- the support that I have received has helped me to move forward in my career firstly with a full time Childcare Worker position and now into my new post of Senior Childcare Worker.
