Meet the Team

Toni Kirby

I have always had a passion for childcare and have completed a BA (Hons) Degree in Childcare and Education. I have also run a successful business for 18 years and have 2 children aged 22 and 18. 
I am a dedicated and passionate person and embrace the importance of providing a caring and loving environment whilst delivering the best educational standards to provide children with the best start in life.

Kelly Smith

I joined the Nursery in June 2006 as a newly qualified practitioner working in the Baby Room. I quickly progressed to Room Manager and was successful in gaining a promotion to Junior Deputy Manager in 2008. I have held my current post as Deputy Manager supporting my team and families alike since 2010. I have an endless passion and energy for my role and work tirelessly across all age groups to ensure that great relationships are built with our children and their families, and that we deliver an exceptional standard of care and education.  

I am the lead SENCo in the setting and I have supported numerous specific individual needs of many children helping them get ready for the next steps on their educational journey. During my time here I have been fortunate enough to be blessed with five boys of my own (Including twins!), being a working parent has helped me have an insight into the daily challenges faced when juggling small children and work commitments; an invaluable lesson in advising those around me. 

Natalie Harvey

I joined the team in 2007 as a Room Manager before progressing to my current role. Across the years I have worked in all age groups broadening my experience, along with having 2 of my own children. Both my children have attended at the nursery which I’ve loved being able to work and be in the same environment as them. I supported the nursery as SENCO and I am currently the Health and Safety coordinator for the nursery. I am very passionate about my role and enjoy building relationships with new parents and being able to share my own experiences with them.
