I became the manager here at Camberwell Grove Nursery in 2019 and I love our nursery as it has a huge garden where we can do some gardening with the children. It’s also just had a refurbishment and looks brand new! The team here are really dedicated to ensuring we provide a fantastic learning experience for our children. I'd describe myself as adventurous and passionate and my proudest moments have been some of the great festival and events parties we have had, which have enabled us to bond more with our families. I believe that every child should have the opportunity to have the best life, to be happy and content within themselves and to be loved.
