I have been part of the LEYF family since 1986 and have managed the Eastbury Nursery since 2014. Our nursery is special because there's a warm, friendly, family feel to it. We also have a huge outside space with several smaller spaces for the children to enjoy. I'd describe myself as warm, friendly and supportive - much like our nursery! One of my proudest moments was supporting a family to access childcare and additional services so that the mother could reach her true potential and gain confidence. I believe that every child should have the opportunity to receive the best care and education, regardless of their family's income or background.

● Pay and conditions above the national average in the nursery sector
