Keely Fletcher

I am the Nursery Manager at Horseshoe Day Nursery and Preschool. I worked as a Nursery Nurse in 2 schools within Nursery and Reception. My journey bought me to Farnborough in 2001 and I then joined Hatton Hill Day Nurseries working at Nursery on the Green and Footsteps. I worked my way through the ranks from Preschool Room Manager to Nursery Manager. After completing my Foundation Degree I moved to Starfish Guildford as their Nursery Manager. I worked there for 6 and a half years before moving to Horseshoe in 2012.

Horseshoe is an amazing setting with fabulous outdoor learning environments. In my spare time I like to read, go to the Theatre and go horse riding.

I have been working in childcare since 1995, working in nursery settings since 1999. I started as a nursery nurse and have worked my way up Deputy Manager. In the years since I started I have been on many training courses, the latest being Forest School First Aid, to go with my Forest School level 3 which I am working towards. I have worked for Bright Horizons and their predecessors Casterbridge since 2010, starting at Churchfield House nursery in Weybridge before moving to Horseshoe in 2014. In my spare time I enjoy seeing friends and photography.
