I won't let dyslexia hold me back

I’m Jenny. I’m an Ofsted registered childminder and have been since 2000 I started childminding when a local authority worker said I would be fab at it. I’m still here 16 years later. Through the last 15 years I have taken various training but it wasn’t until 2009 that I was diagnosed dyslexic while starting my learning on a level 4 qualification.
