Meet the Team

Jenna Spring Gay

My journey began as a Nursery Nurse before becoming a Head of Unit and shortly afterwards became a Head of Unit. I progressed to a Deputy Manager role in 2006 and in September 2010 became a Nursery Manager.

I have an NVQ level 3 and 4 in childhood studies and have also continued to attend training through the years including Senco training so I can support children, parents and staff to meet the needs of all children and give advice and suggestions when needed.

I am very passionate about what I do and set high expectations to ensure we provide a high quality service, care and education, providing enabling environments for all the children.

Laura Snare

I have been working at Maidstone Turkey Mill Nursery since 2013. I have a Level 3 childcare qualification and I have worked in all the rooms at the nursery which has given me a great experience to work with children of all ages as well as build a good understanding of the nursery as a whole.

I am a very passionate childcare professional and really enjoy creating naturally inspiring environments for children at Maidstone Turkey Mill Nursery as well as supporting the Nursery Manager in leading an enthusiastic nursery team.
