Gail Howarth

I started my employment with Portland Nurseries in 2021 as the Nursery Manager at Oakwood House. A new role was created within the group for a ‘Regional Manager’ just six months later, which I secured after my application and interview process.

Working within nurseries for over twenty-five years in many different roles my experience is vast, although as with everyone I am still learning! My roles have been varied, Nursery Nurse, Nursery Manager, Area Manager, Regional Manager and Compliance Manager. I believe my vast experience of working with such a diverse range of nursery practitioners and settings has built my knowledge along with my passion to remain in childcare, being successfully promoted with Portland Nurseries enthuses me daily. I very much look forward to supporting, staff teams, children and families throughout our group, in every and any way possible.

Outside of work, I enjoy travel, weekends away, eating out and simple days at home. I have one son Oliver and a beautiful miniature Yorkshire Terrier called Pippi. Both take up a lot of my time in one way or another, which I wouldn’t change for the world!
