All about me:
I have been a qualified Early Years Practitioner for over 20 years, working across a wide range of settings. My experience includes working in nurseries, children centres, providing support for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and working closely with young people and their families. Before joining Little Green Rascals, I was a National Manager for a large Children’s Charity, setting up and supporting childcare provisions across the Royal Air Force (RAF) for over 5 years.
I joined the Little Green Rascals family in September 2014 as the Nursery Manager at our Elvington site. There, I learnt everything LGR and am now jokingly with my peers - the LGR encyclopedia! After 3 years, I then moved over to manage the wonderful team at Flaxton and helped lead the team in delivering an Outstanding Oftsed inspection in December 2019. My new challenge now is Tadcaster Road - the flagship nursery of the group - I feel very privileged and am excited to lead this family into their next inspection whilst making sure everyday that the Rascals have the very best learning adventure. I have two little rascals of my own and feel very lucky to be able to bring them to work with me - we especially love listening to Classical FM on our commute - I find it can help set us up for a busy day ahead or help soothe and calm on our way home. Working for LGR is ace and I love watching our rascals grow in character and confidence - we have a great team at Tadcaster Road and I'm super proud to be part of it.
