What do you love about working at IPA?
Working with the IPA team has given me a new level of confidence and encouraged me to have deeper understanding on how to stimulate children's development. The settling process is one of my favourite moments because being able to watch the babies ease themselves into a routine and finding self-assurance in just 2 weeks is incredible to me. Working alongside staff that share the same passion as I do makes me feel like I'm definitely in the right place.

What is your favourite childhood play memory?
I really liked drama and art & design as a kid.
