I am married to Dan and have two sons Oliver and Jack. 

I have been working with children aged between 2yrs 9mths to 4yrs 6mths for the last 26 years. During this time I have gained lots of experience and knowledge about child education. I opened Buttercups in June 1998 and have been successfully running the nursery ever since. 

My role at Buttercups as curriculum manager is to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum, enhancing children’s development as they progress through the Early Years Foundation Stage. Also as a key-person it is my role to understand and learn about each of my children’s key interests, development and through observations and assessments progress them to their next steps. My training is on-going; I regularly attend training days to develop my knowledge of child education and business management. 

Since becoming a mother myself I feel I have my own experiences to share with the parents and can sympathise with how difficult it is to let your child take those next steps in to pre-school life without you by their side.
