Pre-school Manager/Chair - NVQ3/Level 3 in Management / Safeguarding.
Child protection officer Level 3
I have two children, who are 23 and 20. They both came here to the pre-school which is where I found my passion for working with children. I started as a parent volunteer, and was an active member of the committee for 3 years before deciding to leave my job of 17 years in the travel industry and become qualified in childcare. 18 years on I am still here, loving it just as much and managing the best team of staff I could wish for, which gives your children a fantastic environment to be in to achieve their early learning goals.
ASSISTANT MANAGER / NVQ3
I have been qualified in childcare since year 2000. I started my career as a Nanny and then became involved with the pre-school when my Daughter joined. A job became available when she was due to start school and I began my employment here. I have now worked here for 11 years, during which time both my younger daughters have come through the pre-school and started school happily.
I thoroughly enjoy my job and love working closely with all the children and their families to provide a happy, stimulating place for the children to play, socialise and learn.

After working for families for many years I decided that I would like a new challenge, and a position came up so I applied and have never looked back!
