Meet the Nursery Manager

I've been part of the LEYF family since 2016. Our nursery is special because it's a home away from home and all the children are happy and settled. The staff are really motivated and always looking for innovative ways to support the development of the children. As a result, we've obtained an Ofsted Outstanding rating for the third time! I'd describe myself as creative, caring and a fun manager. I believe that every child should enjoy an environment that is stimulating, nurturing and caring and that all children should be entitled to high quality care and education.
