I have been working at Eton Manor (Chigwell Bright Horizons) since 2007. I first joined this nursery as a student and was lucky enough to secure a job here. My journey began as a Nursery Practitioner. Soon, I was promoted to a Room Manager of our two pre-school rooms. This was a new and exciting challenge for me as I had to create the enabling environments, support the transitions for school and share my experience of letters and sounds and pre-school elements with the team. I have, along with my team, created a magical preschool setting where children and families feel comfortable, understanding the element of learning through play.
In 2013, I had the opportunity to join the management team as the third in charge of the nursery. During this journey I was supported in learning about other aspects within the nursery setting, where I took on additional roles and responsibility. I am an extremely passionate Nursery Nurse who always strives for the best in myself and the team. I have trained staff to be confident in the EYFS and they are now producing high quality learning journeys.
I have been the Deputy Manager since 2015 at Eton Manor and my journey here has definitely helped me to support my Manager in working towards g outstanding provision. I have attended current community meetings to ensure we are keeping up to date with the new legislations. I am responsible for making sure the nursery has a strong culture of behaviour safety as the Health and Safety Officer. My hard work and motivation has secured us Green on our recent inspection. I have been the nursery SENCO and have worked with the specialist teaches to support the children reaching their milestones as I work in partnership with their main carers.
In 2019 I was promoted to Assistant Manager and have been supporting a new Nursery Manager into her role at Bright Horizons.

I look forward to meeting the new families and supporting them and their children through their journey with Bright Horizons.

It was a pleasure supporting a new nursery and guiding the team in their professional development while sharing my knowledge with the team and supporting them in the area of special educational needs.
I returned back to Heron Quays in January 2021. The Nursery has grown a lot of the past year where myself and the team have embraced the Bright Beginnings curriculum, focused on loose parts and provocations as well as looking into children's play around schemas we look forward to our journey ahead.
