Hi, I am Cheryl. Having the desire and passion to work with children, has always been a dream, I decided to build a stronger foundation in my career, and in 2016 I graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Early Childhood Studies. After my studies, I went on to work in an Asquith nursery in Balham where I further developed and gained a range of experience.

In November 2019, I joined Little Garden as the 3rd in charge and the room leader for Preschool at The Brentford Day Nursery and Preschool. Upon starting at the nursery, the entire team made me feel very welcome,

I automatically fitted into my role straight away. Working as a team and together we build a solid foundation of the nursery. What I love about the Little Garden is their ethos, the company invest in the staff’s development and professional training. The company takes immense pride in uplifting us and ensuring our wellbeing, progression and carer development is at the heart of the decisions they make.

In August 2020, I transferred to Clapham Day Nursery & Preschool where I am now working as a Deputy Manager. I absolutely love Little Garden and I look forward to many more years working with great people.
