With 12 years in childcare, starting as a volunteer and advancing through various settings, including Montessori, I am deeply committed to nurturing young minds. Passionate about impactful early education, I support both children and fellow practitioners in their growth. As a family person with a love for travel and literature, I’m eager to collaborate with our community to foster a positive environment for everyone involved.
With an 18-year journey in childcare, beginning as an apprentice and evolving into a management role over the past 8 years, I’ve embraced the diverse and rewarding nature of early years education. It’s a privilege to contribute to a child’s foundational experiences. I hold a Level 4 qualification in early years education and childcare, underscoring my commitment to excellence and continuous learning in this vital field.
Our nursery has a lovely family feel which makes it a wonderful place for your child to grow, learn and play. We have a passionate team, who aim to create something special and different, ensuring all children are nurtured, cared for, and inspired with their individual needs in mind.
We have a dedicated senior team who support the nursery management in striving for delivering excellence by enriching home from home environments with an expertly trained team.
All staff complete comprehensive training, further developing their knowledge and understanding of children’s development, covering all key aspects in keeping children safe.
We can provide advice and support for all our families on a vast range of topics by pulling together our combined experience.
