My name is Mrs Tappenden and I started working at Pear Tree Mead in March 2015. I have worked as a Teaching Assistant since I left school. I have a NVQ level 3 in Child Care and Education. I have recently achieved the following qualification NCFE CACHE Level 2 Certificate in Understanding Specific Learning Difficulties. It is lovely to see our 3 year olds having fun, learning new skills and watching their confidence grow.
