How long have you worked in childcare & what childcare qualifications do you currently hold?
I’ve worked in childcare for 10 years. I trained as a Primary Teacher and have Early Years Professional Status.

It’s something I always wanted to do, my Mum ran a Pre School while I was growing up and I spent a lot of time there helping out and just loved it.

I worked at another nursery before Muddy Boots and at a school in London before that.

It really is just like an extended family. I love working for a company that really cares about providing good childcare but also about being a great place to work for their staff.

I have a two girls. I four year old called Florence and a 6 month old called Amelia.

Not at the moment!
