OUR NURSERY MANAGER, BECKY
My name is Becky and I am the Nursery Manager here at Kids’ Country Day Nursery. I have worked in Childcare for over 15 years and began my career on the sunny island of Menorca as a Children’s Club Leader. Upon my return, I began working as a Nursery Nurse and soon enrolled on the NVQ Level 3 in Early Years Care and Education to become a qualified practitioner as I knew from thereon that Childcare was my chosen career path.
I have since gone on to qualify in NVQ Level 4 Children’s Care, Learning and Development and also hold an NVQ Level 3 in Leadership and Management. I am currently working towards Level 5. I have worked in a handful of different settings which have all given me invaluable experience and for the previous six years, I have been a Nursery Manager. I have been very lucky to receive an impressive amount of additional training which has enhanced my practice and I have held many additional roles over the years including Safeguarding Officer and Special Educational Needs Coordinator.
I am also qualified in Level 3 Forest Schools which is an outdoor learning initiative originating from Scandinavia. Forest Schools explores the links between the natural environment and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. Research shows that children who are secure in this area of learning have a stronger foundation to be able to learn more effectively in other areas. I am very passionate about outdoor play, come rain or shine and believe there are so many magical learning opportunities to be discovered in the great outdoors!
In my spare time I enjoy going to the theatre, spending time with my little boy Bobby and I like to keep fit by boxing. I have been leading the KC team from the very beginning and it has been an absolute pleasure to watch it grow into the fabulous nursery it is today!
