I had four years experience as a childminder before working in nursery establishments. I worked 12 years for previous employer, as a deputy manager and room leader. I have worked for Little Nutkins since opening. 
I love watching the children become strong, resilient and confident little people and leave nursery ready for school. It is an extremely rewarding occupation, which brings lots of smiles, laughter and the occasional tear, especially at the end of a nursery year.
