Our strong belief is that we can best meet the needs of parents, children and our team by listening to what they have to say about nursery. You will find so many opportunities to tell us what you think and how we can improve right from the start. From the settling in process all the way through to the day your child leaves us, confident, happy and extremely well prepared to start school
We listen to our team regularly too. Through staff forums, team building events, appraisals, awards and family events as well as having a culture of open dialogue and discussion. We know this promotes a positive attitude to work and ensures everyone shares our vision and helps each other to do the very best they can for all our children and families.
A sound understanding of what young children need to do well in their early years and beyond underpins how we make all decisions about the running of the nursery, from appointing senior managers and teachers to deciding what resources to buy or how best to share information about children’s well-being and development.
Working closely with Rebecca Moore, we ensure that our dedicated Nursery Managers have everything they need to deliver first class childcare in a beautiful learning environment with an outstanding team of practitioners. My teaching and leadership experience along with my BA Hons in Primary Education with QTS which means I can provide mentoring and guidance to support our teams to continue to meet all the requirements of their roles.
I have worked with the Village Nursery Group since 1997 where I began my journey as a nursery apprentice, throughout this time I have continued to study and develop my skills with a particular focus on leadership. This has supported me to reach my current role of Regional Operations Manager.
I love all aspects of my role, but my huge passion is the coaching and mentoring of the team working towards growing our future leaders. As part of my role, I enjoy spending time within the rooms to observe and experience what it is really like for children within our nurseries.
