I started at La Petite Academy in 2002 and trained with the nursery achieving my Level 2 and 3 in Childcare. I then went on to complete a Level 3 in Management. I have worked in all age groups throughout my time at the nursery and was promoted to Senior Nursery Nurse, and then onto Deputy Manager in February 2016 .
I am Room Leader in the Toddler Group and manage a group of 4/5 staff and 16 children each day. As Deputy Manager, I am responsible for opening up and closing down the nursery each day and supporting the management team with organising the nursery on a daily basis. I have two children, both of whom have attended La Petite Academy.
I am currently working towards becoming a Safeguarding Champion with Derby City Council.
I am a trained Deputy Desiganted Safeguarding Lead for the setting.
