About Me: I have followed a career in childcare since leaving school, I always knew I wanted to work with children. My experience spans over twenty years; between primary school Foundation Stage classes as a Nursery Nurse, and successfully leading two pre-schools before coming to Tansor Playgroup. I have two sons myself and have recently completed my BA Hons Degree in Early Years with a first!

Outside of playgroup as a family we enjoy bike rides, both of my children like to race mountain bikes and go camping. We love the outdoors!

I have a real passion for early years education and feel devoted to providing Tansor and the surrounding area with a setting that nurtures children’s curiosity and promotes enthusiastic little learners in a kind and warm environment that we can all be proud of.

I lead the playgroup alongside my Deputy who holds a level 3 certificate in childcare, and two other staff who are level 2 trained. Our practitioners are hugely experienced and we all work closely with our focused and dedicated parent committee.
