Meet the Team

Denise Sharkey

I have worked at Callands for nearly 18 years. I started as a student working in various rooms to gain experience and once qualified to NVQ Level 3, I was based in the Pre-School room as a Nursery Nurse. I quickly became Supervisor for the Pre-School unit and in 2003 I progressed to Deputy Nursery Manager. In 2012 I became the Nursery Manager for Callands. We have a great team, and we continue to grow and succeed - this is evident with our latest “Good” OFSTED result. I am passionate about my role within the nursery and my team, the children in our care and their families. 

Jenny Connor

I have worked at Callands for nearly 15 years. I started at the age of 17 working in various rooms, qualifying as a NVQ Level 3 Nursery Nurse through the company’s in house training.  I then progressed to Room Leader in 2010 based in the Baby Room for 4 years. I took on the role of covering Deputy Manager in June in 2014 for 9 months, which I thoroughly enjoyed and I have since been given the opportunity to take on this role full time. I love my job and I have met some fantastic children and families over the years and feel I am very lucky to be part of such a fantastic team.
