I have a wealth of experience in working with pre-school children in a number of different settings, ranging from social services day care to a private school. I have worked with my amazing team for twelve years at Reigate Parish Playgroup.
I am passionate about providing a high quality childcare provision. I enjoy watching your children grow and learn, to see the excitement in new adventures and experiences. I want your child to reach their full potential: to be resilient, capable, confident and self assured ready for their next step in life.
I am very excited to be part of the Leaps Nursery and look forward to meeting old and new families in September.
I am a qualified primary school teacher with over sixteen years’ experience of class teaching, interventions and small group teaching in a number of local schools. In addition, for the past four years I have worked at Reigate Parish Playgroup, where I have been Deputy Manager and SENDCo. I have three children and appreciate the importance of a good foundation to a child’s early years journey.
I love watching children’s language, social skills and personalities develop. It is exciting to see them buzz as they make connections while they play, listen and join in. I pride myself in my ability to make children feel relaxed, comfortable and have fun in their learning.
As a team we look forward to supporting and caring for your children as we establish Leaps Nursery. What an adventure!
