About Me

I have worked in childcare now for nearly 20 years having started out childminding when my own children were very young. All 3 of my children started their education with Naval Under Fives and I have been involved with the organisation as a parent, a parent helper, a parent rep on the Board of Trustees as well as being a member of staff, deputy and now Manager. I started out in one of the preschools but, for the majority of my time with NUF, I have been with the 0-3 year olds. I love this age range, watching them grow into little people before they move on to Skylark next door. We work very closely with parents and pride ourselves on our parent partnership. We offer a 'home from home' environment for the little ones to thrive in and we support parents and families from civilian backgrounds as well as military. I consider myself very lucky to be part of this organisation, doing a job I love.
