I have worked for Bright Horizons for 8 years as a Deputy Manager and covered many other settings as Manager for the company. I have been in childcare for over 25 years and I hold an NVQ Level 3 in Childcare and Education, as well as a Montessori Diploma in Early Years. I am excited to have joined the Bright Horizons team and continue this adventure at Harwell Day Nursery & Preschool and looking forward to further learning and development throughout my career. I am passionate about childcare and believe the safety of our children is of the utmost priority.
