Nursery Practitioner

About Me:

Hi I’m Cayden and I have lived my whole life in South Africa in Fourways, Johannesburg. My Mum was a teacher so as I was growing up I always wanted to be a teacher too! The older I got the more I realised it is my passion and calling in life to support children in growing and developing. Watching children thrive to be the best they can be is such a special feeling, which is what makes every day with children so incredible. I love working with children so I have had lots of different experiences working as an assistant teacher, an au pair, water polo coach and babysitter. I am looking forward to seeing smiles, growth and all round happiness with the children at Monkey Puzzle.

In my free time I play water polo, do swimming, dance and enjoy yoga. My other hobbies include reading and journaling. I also really enjoy spending time writing down my thoughts, goals and daily affirmations. I’m so excited to explore and travel Europe and England whilst I am living in London too!
