      Owner / Director / Health & Safety Officer / Deputy Child Protection Co-ordinator

      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.

      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.

      Badgers Room Supervisor

      Hi my name is Jade, I am a qualified level 3 Nursery Practitioner. I lead the Pre-school children in Badgers.  The children brighten up my day and are always full of surprises as they play, investigate and explore. In Badgers we like to spend lots of time outside in our Badger garden as well as our big back garden. We like to look for bugs, make dens and grow our own vegetables, and of course we love to get messy in our mud kitchen!
