We are thrilled to be adding to our highly skilled Membership Ambassador Team. The Team works closely alongside our members ensuring their views are heard by the Management Team and that their professional know-how influences all that we do.
Meet Cristina Sajtos. You may already be aware of Cristina, she was recently named the Nursery World Nanny of the Year 2020 and we couldn't be more proud to have her on board.
Cristina is a highly skilled nanny/ maternity nurse and sleep consultant, helping parents with newborn care, routine, sleep training advice and also "troubleshooting". Her experience aligns well with her qualifications. With more than 8 years of experience in childcare, she is adept at attending to the emotional, physical, educational and behavioural needs of children from newborn onwards.
Cristina regularly updates her training, builds on her knowledge base and skills. Moreover, while "on-the-job" experience has afforded her a well-rounded skill set, including first-rate communication, partnership with parents and problem solving, Cristina excels at :
Engaging children in educational activities/messy play
Developmental journal writing and assessment of the child's stage of development/ developmental planners to support individual needs
Schedule play dates/classes
Encouraging and modelling appropriate social behaviour
In addition to her experience and personal qualities, Cristina has a solid educational foundation and a passion for helping nurture and develop children. She considers herself extremely enthusiastic, contributing positively to children’s growth and development.
Lizzie Watts, BAPN Senior Membership Ambassador said "We are thrilled to be welcoming Cristina onto the Team and can't wait to start working with her. We're very lucky to have her join us. Members will have the opportunity to get to know Cristina through our regular newsletters and engagement in our members-only Facebook Group 'BAPN's Place.
