You and your child will love our refurbished nursery in Callands, designed to support your child’s development from the age of 3 months to 5 years.

I have worked at Callands for nearly 20 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 preschool room as a Nursery Nurse. I quickly became Supervisor for the preschool 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.
I started as a student whilst I completed my CCLD Level 3, I then took a year out of education and became a based member of staff in toddlers and preschool.
I then went to Liverpool Hope University to study Early Childhood and Education alongside working here part time as a bank staff member
After graduating I took a promotion in another nursery as a Toddler Room Leader where I gained many leaderships skills. During this time I continued to learn by qualifying as a Level 3 forest school practitioner.
I am now currently in a new role at Callands as deputy manager and am very excited to learn, extend and stimulate practice and help guide our nursery to outstanding as a team.
In my spare time I enjoy visiting different citys and countries around the world. I also like to improve my fitness by going swimming and to the gym.
