I began my career at Portland Nurseries in August 2020 as Manager of Harlequin Nursery. I have worked in the childcare sector for since 2007 and have been a Nursery Manager since 2011. I have extensive knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage and Early Years Development and believe helping staff to learn and develop is the key to an outstanding team.
I graduated from the University of Huddersfield in 2016 with a degree in Early Childhood Studies 2 days before getting married. I have since completed my family after having my second baby in 2019.
I have a passion for safeguarding children; working with many different families over the years and watching children thrive in nursery before heading off to their next destination - school.
Harlequin is such a homely nursery providing outstanding practice at all times. My team are dedicated and caring, providing a safe and stimulating environment where all children are happy and confident to explore and learn through play. We are committed to nurturing positive relationships with all our parents and we take pride in this open two-way communication which enhances the children’s progress and development in our care. At Harlequin Nursery all children are unique, and we work together to give each child the very best possible start in life and for the future
