I am currently the Manager at Active Learning Crouch End since joining the team in March 2014.
I have been with Active Learning since September 2008 where I started as a nursery nurse at our Finchley branch and was promoted to room leader in January 2009.
In 2010, I was again promoted, this time to a third in charge role where I helped support the other room leaders along with a couple of our other settings and in 2012 I moved over to our West Hampstead nursery as a Deputy Manager, which helped me grow and develop as a leader.
I have enjoyed my journey at Active Learning and look forward to continuing my progression with Bright Horizons.
I have been working at the nursery for over 5 years now and have done a range of roles including the Art Teacher/Head of Art, nursery teacher and third in Charge before becoming the Deputy Manager 8 months ago. Since beginning at Active Learning Crouch End I have completed my Level 7 Early Years Initial Teacher Training which I really enjoyed and have found hugely beneficial to my childcare practice.
I have worked across all of the Active Learning nurseries when supporting the Art Teachers/Specialist which has been fantastic and am now looking forward to continuing to visit lots of the Bright Horizons nurseries.
I have had a fantastic 5 years with active Learning and look forward to many more with Bright Horizons!
