Lindsey Gibbs

I have been working at the Laurels Day Nursery since April 2008, when I started as a nursery nurse. I am now nursery manager having undertaken my Early Years Foundation Degree followed by my BA Hons Level 6. 

Having had three children, I have first-hand experience of the joys of early childhood. I enjoy my job immensely and no two days are the same; I look forward to seeing the children engaged and motivated in their daily activities. I feel proud to be part of their learning journey and rewarded by seeing them achieve to their full potential. In my spare time I love spending time with my own family, riding bikes in the park and walking the family dog.

I have been at The Laurels since March 2016, having worked previously at our Bromley nursery for the past eight years. I have studied my Early Years Foundation Degree as well as my BA Hons Level 6 in Early Years Education. My passion has always been with children and I enjoy watching them achieve. I like to spend time with my family and friends and enjoy reading, going out to the cinema.
