Nikki Black

I have been working in childcare for 12 years, having worked my way up from a Support Worker to Room Leader and have recently been appointed to Nursery Manager at St Swithin.

I genuinely enjoy my job and I am so fortunate to work in a profession that is constantly evolving and changing and one that is challenging in all the right ways every day.

I have my SVQ level 3 qualification and am currently studying for my CCLD level 4 which I aim to complete early next year.

Kim Scanlan

I have been working at St Swithin Nursery since 2009. I achieved the HNC Early Education and Childcare qualification while studying at college and last year I completed the Children's Care Learning and Development level 4.

I have experience in various roles within the nursery from Practitioner, Room Leader and then onto Deputy Manager in July 2016. This role has been a great opportunity for me as I am able to implement the knowledge and skills I gained while studying the level 4 qualification.

I enjoy spending time daily within both the baby and infant departments supporting the staff in their practice as well as building relationships with the children and their families.

I have always had a passion for working with young children and feel lucky to have such a rewarding job.
