      Owner / Director

      I am Katy. I have worked in nursery since 2007 working my way up the nursery ladder. I was the Deputy Manager and Pre-school teacher for over 6 years. I took the opportunity to purchase the nursery in 2014 as I believed so strongly in the setting and was very excited to be able to be more involved and to extend and develop the nursery alongside my Red Kite team.

      Manager

      Hi I am Tanya, I have worked in the nursery since 2000. I used to work in the baby room as the room supervisor before becoming the Deputy Manager. I have now been promoted to Manager and I’m very excited by this new professional challenge.I have two boys who are now at school. They have both enjoyed the nursery which prepared them for ‘big school’. Having the boys at nursery has given me a personal insight into the feelings and needs of both parents and children on settling into the nursery environment.
