Lisa has worked for Asquith Nurseries and Caterham Day Nursery & Pre-School since leaving college in 1997 with her NNEB. After a small gap working two summer seasons at holiday camps, she returned and has been with us ever since. Lisa has progressed from being a shy Nursery Nurse to a more confident Assistant Manager in 2009. Her own child attended the nursery and as such has seen the nursery from both staff and parental perspective, giving her a greater empathy with new and current parents.
Natalie came to Caterham Day Nursery & Pre-School in 2014, after completing a degree at University in Drama and performance studies. Since starting at the nursery, Natalie has also completed an NVQ 3 in Childcare Studies and stepped into the position of Pre-School Room Leader. She has gained experience when partaking in various work placements based in school environments giving her the knowledge needed to support the Pre-School children developing their school readiness. Natalie is willing to take on new challenges and responsibilities and has built a good rapport with the families attending.
