I am the Nursery Manager at Sky High Achievers Ashton. I have a BA HONS in early childhood studies and Early Years Professional Status. I have worked in the childcare sector for 17 years. I have had several roles during my career so far, including Nursery Nurse, Bookstart Officer, Early years consultant, Children’s Centre Manager and over the past 7 years I have managed nurseries within the Tameside borough. I am passionate about providing high quality care, learning and education for the children and families that attend our nursery.
I joined Sky High Achievers working across both sites supporting both nursery managers in March 2018.
I am now based at the Melandra site permanently I am currently supporting the everyday practice within the Toddler room.
I enjoy getting to know the children and their families in my care and strive to bring the best possible care and learning outcomes for the children.
I am currently studying with Doncaster College and university centre via distance learning to gain my Level 4 and 5 foundation degree in early years.
I first started working in the early years sector in 2013 as a volunteer. Shortly after this I completed my early years qualification because I enjoyed my role so much. I am passionate and caring and it gives me great satisfaction helping to nurture and educate the children in my care. We are a strong dedicated team and are very supportive of all our families.
I am the Out of Scholl Club Leader. I ensure that I fulfil my role to the highest potential every day. I have a good bond with all the children and their families. I have worked for Sky High Achievers since the day it opened. We have a great, hardworking team and we are always there to support each other and our families and lend a listening ear.
I started working in the early years field in 2014 and came straight to this nursery after completing my Level 3 Diploma at college. I worked at the nursery for 3 years before Sky High Achievers took over so I have been here nearly 5 years. When I was younger I enjoyed looking after my nephew and this is what made me peruse a career in childcare. I am a very caring person and I ensure that I am a positive role model to the children and families I work with. I have built up excellent relationships with the parents and children at our nursery.
