Tanzila Akhtar

I joined Portland Nurseries in 2005 as a Nursery Nurse and then left in 2010 to further progress my studies.

Since then, I have completed my BA Honours Degree in Early Years whilst working as a manager. I have 16 years’ experience in the early years sector and have 11 years’ managerial experience. I returned to Portland Nurseries in February 2022 as Holly Bank Nursery Manager. Holly Bank has a fantastic team and it is clear to see that the children feel happy and secure in our care and form great bonds.

As a mum to two boys who are both very adventurous I love spending time with the children outdoors. There is a such a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures here and it is a privilege to be constantly learning new things from each of our families.
