Working with children can be scary if you don’t know what to expect! Just ask Cotlands early learning facilitator (Elf) Winnie Makeke.
Winnie’s first day as a Cotlands Elf was 24 July 2017. She nearly quit the very next day. “It was very difficult for me to settle in. I nearly quit, because I failed to control the children. I had been trained on how to use the lesson plan but I was so scared! I had no idea!”
Thankfully, Winnie didn’t let her fears spoil this amazing opportunity.
“I’ve settled in very well and I know how everything operates. Every day I learn something new. I love working with children and am very proud to be a Cotlander.”
Thanks to all our donors for giving Winnie the chance to build a fulfilling career in ECD.
