      Deputy Manager / Hedgehogs Room Supervisor

      Hi I am Tanya I have worked in the nursery since 2000. I am the room supervisor in the baby room as well as the Deputy Manager. 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.

      My name is Susan, I have been in childcare for over 10 years and although I joined the team in 2013, I feel part of the Red Kite family. I lead each of the rooms in absence of the room supervisors. I enjoy flexibility of working throughout nursery and it allows me to engage with both children and the nursery staff team.
