What do current EYC’s have to say about the role?
“I like the good news stories coming out of review calls, families tell me about their progress and how much their child has developed in a year. Some are even happy to exit the scheme early and this is what early intervention is all about. It’s about giving the little one a boost and helping them to be school ready, to get ahead”
“For me the reason I wanted to stay is because of the relationship you make with the family and the difference you make to that family’s life, not just the child’s life. It’s knowing you have made a difference for the whole family.”
We “help families with children at their most vulnerable to assist their children to grow and develop into children, teenagers and adults with the most potential and possibility to achieve their goals. The sooner we can get supports the more chance we have to assist the families. We start at the coal face getting the first initial supports to help them to live a better life at a time when we can really make a difference”
