Amanda Delaney

Classroom Assistant
NVQ Level 2 Early Years Care and Education

I joined Westbourne House in April 2018 and was welcomed into this amazing Westbourne family with open arms.

I knew from an early age that I wanted to work with children. I love to see the children grow in confidence and to watch their faces light up when they achieve something. It gives me great joy to know that I have helped them in their journey!

I have worked previously at a local infant school for seven years and before that in a nursery.

My experience with working with children doesn’t stop in the classroom, it continues in the dance studio with over 20 years experience as a qualified dance teacher with the ISTD. At the age of 16, I went away to dance college and gained my dance teachers qualifications in Ballet, Tap, Modern and Classical Greek. My greatest passion is tap, and you will often find me tapping across the playground!

I feel that I am very lucky to be working for such a wonderful school, the grounds are beautiful, the children are so lucky to be given such fantastic opportunities and I get to work with a fantastic team!
