Head of Nursery
Career overview: I have been part of the Ashbridge family for 18 years, starting working at Lindle Lane in a variety of positions before becoming manager of The Fledglings. I was the first manager at Ashbridge on Ribble and managed the nursery for 3 years before moving on to Maxy Farm in August 2017.
Professional interests: I am passionate about children’s happiness and development in the Early Years with my biggest influence to date being a trip to visit nurseries in Sweden and Finland. This trip, funded by Ashbridge, helped me to recognise the ethos of Scandinavian learning and has led to us implementing it at Maxy Farm.
Personal interests: I am very fortunate that my children were able to be part of the Ashbridge family through nursery and school. In my spare time I enjoy watching my three children play sport and walking our dog with my husband Martin.
Head of Nursery
Career overview: I have worked for Ashbridge since June 2016, starting at The Fledglings as a practitioner and trainee SENCO. Throughout my time with Ashbridge I have progressed to Room Leader and then to my current role as Team Leader.
Professional interests: I have an interest in all areas of children’s development, however my current focus is encouraging outdoor learning. I try and encourage creativity throughout all learning aspects.
Personal interests: I recently married my husband in the beautiful Lake Garda. I have a true passion for travelling and discovering new things. My hobbies include skiing, mountain biking, hiking and fine art; painting, line drawing and abstract.
