After our passion, what is the next most important thing you should know about us?

Hello, I'm Abby and I have worked with children since 2009.
I qualified as a Level 3 when I was 17 having started as an apprentice. I progressed further in my career into a Room Leader role and was then honoured to step into management as the Deputy Manager where I thrive to achieve the best for all our families.
I love working alongside parents and carers and making them feel comfortable in leaving their most precious child with us. I absolutely love being a part of each child's journey and watching them grow and develop over their time spent with us. It never gets any easier saying goodbye when they start their new adventure to big school.
Kindred continuously offer training opportunities to support my progression to achieve being the best I can be. I am now a mummy myself, and my little girl joins me in the Kindred family.
Deputy Nursery Manager
Hello, I'm Jodie and I have been working at Kindred Rayleigh for almost 7 years. I am passionate about Early Years Education, and this is the inspiration for me achieving my BA (Hons) Early Years Education.
I have completed lots of other courses to further myself and provide our children with the best early years' experience, some of which include Paediatric First Aid, Safeguarding, Safer Recruitment, Makaton, and Forest School Leader.
I believe a child's early years are the initial embers that spark a lifelong passion for learning. It's my privilege to share this time with both the children and our team every day.
