Meet the Team

Gill Knight

I started working at Nursery on the Hill as a Manager in February 2008 and was initially employed as Maternity Cover. In 2008, I was lucky enough to be made permanent and have been here ever since.
I qualified in 1983 as an NNEB and have completed many training courses since then to extend my knowledge in my chosen profession. I have one son who attended Nursery on the Hill and who is now doing well at school. I started my career in a social services day nursery in Greenwich as a nursery nurse and spent 10 years there covering all positions. I have also spent another 10 years as Manager working for a large nursery group and several years managing smaller nurseries.
I enjoy coming to nursery as I am part of a well-motivated team who continually strive to provide excellent care and education for all families that attend our nursery. I particularly like being able to make a difference to the children’s lives.

Mags Hales

I qualified as a NVQ Level 3 in 1999 and have been working in nurseries ever since. I started at Nursery on the Hill in February 2008 as a Room Manager and have progressed to management. I spent 2 and a half years working at another Bright Horizons Nursery as deputy and acting nursery manager and have now returned back to Nursery on the Hill. Before working at Bright Horizons I spent 9 years working for a smaller company. 

I have a son and a daughter who have both attended Nursery on the Hill  and they have really enjoyed the nursery. I have been fortunate enough to be able to balance my home and work life by working part time and sharing the Deputy Nursery Manager role with Sarah.
