I began my childcare career at Bright Horizons Andover (formerly Yellow Dot) in 2014 where I worked my way from apprentice to Third in Charge. I achieved my Level 3 qualification and
continued to study for a further three years gaining my Level 6 BA Honours degree in Early Childhood. In 2020 I joined one of our Bright Horizons client nurseries as an Assistant Manager where I worked with a terrific team introducing loose parts and natural resources as well as creating a nature nursery programme and developing their outdoor spaces.
I believe in the importance of outdoor play and learning from real life opportunties and experiences. I am passionate about training and education and I will be continuing working with my amazing team so that we can support each and every child to be happy, healthy and creative in their own way.
I have worked with children since 2014. I gained my level 3 at Wiltshire college and then worked at a local nursery to me in Wiltshire. I then went to work at a nursery in Wilton which had a farm and a forest school, which is were my love for the outdoor classroom began. I worked up to the role of Room Leader before taking the next step in my progression in 2018 at a small nursery in Andover, I then joined the Bright Horizons family in September 2021.
I am very passionate about the outdoors, child lead learning and real life experiences. I look forward to creating magical moments and new memories at Chandlers Ford every day.
