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.
I have been working at Teddies Sevenoaks since 2003. I joined as a Nursery Nurse and worked within our Baby Room for seven years, during which time I was promoted to Head of Unit. I am now the Deputy Manager and have been since 2010. I really enjoy my role as no two days are the same!
I started my childcare career in 1994 after gaining my NNEB Diploma and started working in a London Primary School as a Nursery Nurse within 3 Reception classes and then went on to set up an early years unit within the school. I left in 1998 to have my daughter and took a career break until joining Bright Horizons. Whilst at Bright Horizons, I have had a son, who has benefitted from the full Bright Horizons experience. I fully appreciate a parent’s perspective when looking around the nursery and strive to put them at ease as much as possible tailoring each personal tour to meet their needs.
The Bright Horizons passion and enthusiasm for providing high-quality care isn’t just common knowledge within our own business – we’ve also gained some impressive accolades from external sources for excellence as both a childcare provider, and as an employer. We are the only childcare company to have been listed for the last 11 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
