I have been working in the childcare sector since 1987. I completed my childcare education whilst working full time. I achieved my Cache Level 3 NVQ in Child Care and education and Group Care and Education in Oct 1995.

I gained a Level 5 Foundation Degree (Arts) in Early Years Childhood Studies in March 2011. I have continued to attend training courses through the Early Years/Starting Life Well teams to ensure my knowledge experience of changes in childcare is up-to-date. I have been the manager at Claremont Nursery since joining them in March 2005 working full time.

I have two daughters the oldest is a qualified primary teacher and the youngest is at primary school after attending Claremont. I am the lead professional for Safeguarding, Behaviour Management, Health and Safety and ECAT (Every Child a Talker).

I sometimes fill in for Debbie our cook when she is off. When I am not in my office you will usually find me working upstairs with the Jelly Tots and Smarties. I enjoy socialising with family and friends.
