Meet the manager

Yvonne, Katharine Bruce manager

Hello, I’m Yvonne and I have been with LEYF since 1996 and joined Katharine Bruce in 1997. We are really special because of our extensive outdoor area and qualified staff who are friendly and supportive. My proudest moment here was probably when I introduced the outing for the whole nursery, as it had never been done before I became the manager.

About the nursery

Katharine Bruce Community Nursery is located in Queen's Park and provides care and education for children from birth to five years.

The nursery offers an extensive outdoor area and qualified staff who are friendly and supportive.

The experienced staff focus on developing children’s natural curiosity and confidence so they leave nursery as inquisitive explorers.

Nutritious home-cooked food supports the children's healthy growth and development and caters for any specific dietary requirements.

The staff work closely with the parents to ensure that the nursery is an extension of the child’s home and learning environment.
