Meet the Nursery Manager

I have been working at Fire Station Nursery since 2015 and I love it because we are a family. We're based in an old fire station, which was built in the late 1800s so we have a really unique building! We love to connect with the local community by going on outings in the area, which is part of our multi-generational approach to learning. I describe myself as fun, kind and caring and I encourage and inspire our staff to be the best that they can be so that the children have the best nursery experience they can. I believe that every child deserves the best in life, regardless of their background.
