I've been managing Harrow Road Nursery since 2017. Previously I was at our Wandsworth Bridge Nursery, where my proudest achievement was gaining an 'Outstanding' Ofsted rating! At Harrow Road we offer a calm, warm, happy environment for our children. We take great pride in knowing each child's development and needs. We aim to give our children the best start, and that means we have happy children and contented parents! We look to find a way to bring out the strengths and talents of each child - sometimes that means thinking outside the box. I believe that every child is unique, with their own individual strengths.
We know it’s our people who make LEYF great. That’s why we value each staff member and offer:
● Pay and conditions above the national average in the nursery sector
● A nurturing, fun and value-led working environment
● An award-winning staff training and development programme
● The opportunity to make a real difference to children’s lives
