Meet the Team

Liz Hardiman

I have a varied background in childcare which spans 30 years. From a child minder working from home, to completing my Level 3 NVQ. With my children both at school I became a full time NVQ Assessor and gained my post 16 teaching qualification allowing me to teach my passion.  Over 12 years I opened two diversification nurseries, completed my Level 3 in Play Work, Level 4 in Early Years, Level 5 in Management and I also continued with assessing and teaching. Working alongside City and Guilds, I helped support the development of some of the different childcare qualifications available to staff working in the sector. I joined Bright Horizons in 2011. It has always been my passion to support staff to develop and progress in their chosen career and to be able to meet the needs of the families they care for with ease, confidence and professionalism.

I have worked at Woodstock Road Nursery for four years and I am very passionate about early childhood education. I have a Level 3 qualification in childcare and have recently started an Early Years Foundation Degree at Oxford Brooks University.
