I have been in childcare and with Bright Horizons for since 2007. I have a Level 3 CACHE Diploma in Childcare and Education. My passion for childcare is that I want to make a difference in a child’s life. I enjoy watching children grow and blossom into little people and I love being part of that. No two days are ever the same and seeing and hearing the children’s laughter and voices is such an amazing feeling.
I have been working at Eton Manor since 2007. I first joined this nursery as a student and was lucky enough to secure a job here. My journey began as a Nursery Practitioner. Soon, I was promoted to a Room Manager of our two pre-school rooms. This was a new and exciting challenge for me as I had to create the enabling environments, support the transitions for school and share my experience of letters and sounds and pre-school elements with the team. I have, along with my team, created a magical preschool setting where children and families feel comfortable, understanding the element of learning through play.
In 2013, I had the opportunity to join the management team as the third in charge of the nursery. During this journey I was supported in learning about other aspects within the nursery setting, where I took on additional roles and responsibility. I am an extremely passionate Nursery Nurse who always strives for the best in myself and the team. I have trained staff to be confident in the EYFS and they are now producing high quality learning journeys.
I have been the Deputy Manager since 2015 at Eton Manor and my journey here has definitely helped me to support my Manager in working towards that outstanding provision. I have attended current community meetings to ensure we are keeping up to date with the new legislations. I am responsible for making sure the nursery has a strong culture of behaviour safety as the Health and Safety Officer. My hard work and motivation has secured us Green on our recent inspection.
