Meet the Team

Jess Knowles

I have been with the company for 11 years. I started working at Long Road as a nursery assistant and I worked my way up to Deputy Manager. I then transferred to Ely as deputy manager in 2011 and a year later, I was promoted to manager. I have always had a passion for children and want the best outcomes for them. I love working with families and seeing the children develop and grow. 

Sarah Whitaker

I starting working with the company from 2002, where I started as a level 2 nursery nurse. I trained on the job to complete my level 3 NVQ, a short while after, I was promoted to the role of room supervisor in the Early Pre-School room. In 2011, I left the nursery to gain experience in another setting. I returned to the nursery in 2012 as the baby room leader and completed my NVQ level 4 in child care, the following year, I was promoted to Third in charge of the nursery. 

I thoroughly enjoyed my role as a room leader but was looking for a new challenge so I applied for the role of deputy manager and I was successful. I have been the deputy manager at Ely Day Nursery since October 2014 and I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of my job- I wouldn’t change it for the world.
