I have been employed at Crocus Early Years Centre since December 2001. I originally started as third in charge/room manager in preschool and after a period of acting manager early in 2008 was promoted to centre manager in August 2008. I have worked in childcare for over 25 years since having my own children in preschools and at a crèche. I completed my Foundation Degree in Early Years in January 2013.
I have worked in childcare for 10 years now and I am really excited to have just joined the team at Saffron Walden Crocus. I have a passion for early years and enjoy watching children learn and grow as they engage in activities inspired from their own interests and experiences.
I have worked at Crocus for the past 18 years. I have a level 4 in children’s care, Learning and development and am the lead SENCo at the nursery. I work 4 days a week Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday leading the Preschool Team.
I am room leader of the Baby room at Saffron that takes children from 3 months to 2 years. I love letting the babies interests grow through creative and outdoor experiences whether this is in paint, sand, soil or water. In my spare time I find myself illustrating in various coffee shops, where I am able to bring my creative ideas outside of work into the baby room.
