Manager
Health & Safety Officer
Designated Safeguarding Lead






I am proud to provide a nursery that is safe, caring, and a place where children want to come each day. I achieve this by drawing on my many years’ expertise, training and supporting staff to the very highest standard. This in turn helps staff to challenge the children in developing and progressing as individuals ready for school.
