I established the nursery in 1999, following many years working within the corporate environment, working with the executive team and supervising support staff, my last position before setting up Kingscliffe Day Nursery was working with the International and Financial Directorʼs of Adams Childrenswear. Previous companies I worked for included, The Leicester Mercury, Deloitte & Touche Accountants and the Balfour Beatty Group. In 1998, I felt that I had gained enough knowledge and courage to start up my own business, Kingscliffe Day Nursery, providing care and education for young children. I resigned and enrolled on a childcare course, undertaking voluntary work at the Loughborough College nursery, put my business plan together and in March of 1999 Kingscliffe Day Nursery was established.
I am proud to say that I still love and enjoy the role I play in young childrenʼs learning and have been inspired over the years by the children who have attended Kingscliffe to continually adapt our environment to evolve in such a way that it is reflective of the needs of the child and the changing focus set by the Department of Education.
In my spare time, I love to go walking with my husband Andrew and our three labradors Merlin, Agatha and Bramble.
