I have worked at Nursery@Aspire since it first opened in 2011. I started as Deputy Manager and Room Leader of the Dolphin Room.
I have always had a passion for Early Years and since graduating from university with a sociology degree, have always had jobs in the childcare/educational sector.
As I’ve worked at the nursery from the within the room I feel I have a better understanding of what the job involves from the position of the practitioners, assistants and room leaders.
I am open to new ideas and keeping up to date with current legislation and ideas in early years. I am a believer in the nursery and have an open door policy.
