I grew up in Essex where I studied media and photography. I love being creative and having grown up around children. With my mum having been a foster parent, I wanted to use my education and creative side to further education into childcare.
I first started work within a hospital; this is where I gained my childcare qualifications. To further my development I went onto work as a senior member of staff supporting learning through the use of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to other staff members within a private company and a convent.
After a few years I left to work in Sure Start where I progressed to be the manager of the centre. This had been a wonderful rewarding experience to have been part of. I supported and worked with a number of different agencies for outreach and It was here that I was head hunted to work in a private Chelsea Nursery School, where I worked for eight years, developing into a Deputy Head Manager during which time I gained my management qualification.
I chose to move on to expand into a new project which has taken me to Bright Horizons where I have been at Active Learning Chiswick since 2016 and love every moment. I adore my chosen profession and in my 17 years’ experience, every day is very different but very rewarding.
The Bright Horizons passion and enthusiasm for providing high-quality care isn’t just common knowledge within our own business – we’ve also gained some impressive accolades from external sources for excellence as both a childcare provider, and as an employer. We are the only childcare company to have been listed for the last 11 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
