Meet the Nursery Manager

I joined LEYF and became the manager of The Conservatoire Nursery at the beginning of 2018. I love working here because every day is different, which is inspiring. We're a family here and believe in supporting each other, our families and our children. We create fun in all that we do! I'm most proud of the exemplary relationships we've built with our families and the positive feedback that we receive from them. We work together closely to create events and experiences. I believe that every child is unique and has the ability to learn. Children should be given opportunities to develop to their full potential, at their own pace, in a safe environment, and in a fun, inspiring way.
