LBWF Early Years Representative

About Me

"I've been the manager of our family ran nursery since 2012 in which we have grown from a small nursery to a 140 place setting. I work closely with other neighbouring nurseries and believe this has been fundamental in helping us grow by sharing good practice and advice. I have a good understanding of what problems we all face and feel that I offer the board a fair opinion on what benefits a high quality setting that puts the interests of the children first "
