I have worked in childcare since 2007, having gained my NNEB qualification in 2001. I then went on to do a Dance and Related Arts degree which I completed in 2004, before working for a bank, progressing to counter manager during my time there. After working there for 3 years I decided I needed a change and began working in a small nursery in Bournemouth as a Nursery Nurse. My travels took me to Essex where I continued working in nurseries and became a room leader before being promoted to Third in Charge. I've worked in various settings as a Deputy Manager and then as Nursery Manager for 2 years before joining Bright Horizons in November 2015.
My role at Bright Horizons is both enjoyable and exciting. Lucy and I have worked hard to improve the nursery and my passion and dedication lies in striving for excellence and we are committed to this at Coulsdon.
I have been working in childcare since 2006, when I started as an apprentice and gained a Level 2 and Level 3 in Childcare and Education with City and Guilds. I have been with Bright Horizons since 2006 starting with Casterbridge where I worked at Bright Horizons Banstead. I then progressed in my job role from Nursery Assistant to Nursery Nurse when I gained my NVQ Level 3 then from there I was promoted to room manager then to junior deputy and from then to present Deputy Manager.
Since November 2015 I have worked alongside Radha supporting her in the day to day running of the nursery. My role is also the Senco Coordinator where I work closely with the staff team and parents to ensure that I am here to support them if needed at any time. I also have the role and responsibility of being the health and safety coordinator where it is my job to ensure the nursery environment is kept clean and safe and to report if we have any health and safety concerns and to also ensure everyone is kept safe.
