Meet the Team

Karren Thompson

I have been with the company now 24 years and have many qualifications including my BA honours in Early Childcare, I am also paediatric first aid trained. I enjoy working with the children especially children aged between new-born to five years old.

I am also a Mother to two lovely children a little girl aged 8 years old and a young man aged 19 years old.

I like to watch a child change, grow and achieve with the support from our staff when they are in our care.

I enjoy working alongside our strong team and parents at East Barnet Day Nursery. As a team we have created a safe, and caring environment together and the children who currently attend East Barnet enjoy their day at nursery and always say goodbye with a smile on their face at the end of the day.

Kathryn McKenzie

I have been working at East Barnet 5 and a half years and began as a nursery nurse and at the time I was studying my CACHE Level 3 qualification in Childcare and Education soon after I qualified I was promoted to a room leader, third in charge of the nursery and then was promoted to a deputy manager when I came back from my maternity leave. I have a little girl who is 18months old which also helps me to understand parents when they are settling their baby into nursery on their first day before going back to work.

I am also the nursery health and safety officer, nursery fire marshall and the nursery’s Special Educational Needs Coordinator and also paediatric first aid trained.

I enjoy coming to work every day to support the children’s development and learning but also to a very supportive and caring team.

The children’s care is paramount to myself and Karren and all of the team at all times.

I think it’s very important to have a strong parent partnership and this is created on the very first day I meet our parents.
