Tao Oberholzer
The Mulberry Tree, Wirral
Early Years Practitioner Apprenticeship

Reason for nomination

Tao works alongside staff in all areas of care for children aged 0-5 years. She is based with the younger children at the nursery. Tao has been working towards becoming a key worker and taking on more responsibilities each day. She uses her apprenticeship standard to plan appropriate activities for the children. Her manager Jess says how well Tao has done and that she works and behaves as if she is already fully qualified despite having several months left on her apprenticeship.
