I’ve been at Ford Road nursery since we opened our doors in 2009. A high number of families return to us with siblings so we have a real family feel. Each age group room has its own outdoor space with mud kitchens, growing patches, and den areas! My proudest moment was achieving an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rating in 2018. It made me reflect on how far the nursery has developed since I became the manager. The team strives every day to implement the LEYF values: fun, inspiring, nurturing, brave.
