The Making of a Newparker  It takes: energy and adaptability as healthy young children are unpredictable and demanding. tolerance and patience to cope with the noise and mess that young children may create. Imagination to stimulate children and help them develop. cheerfulness and a sense -of humour to face the demands of the job, day in, day out. Above all it takes a real belief  in the individual worth of each child and a determination to ensure that they have the opportunity to develop to their full potential irrespective of their class, ethic origin, gender, race, religion or disability.
