Hello, my name is Lisa, and I am the Nursery Manager at Kindred Shortlands. I have been working in Early Years since 2001 and have worked at this nursery since 2013 where I started at the Deputy Manager before becoming Manager in 2016. I hold a Level 3 Diploma & NVQ in Early Years Care and Education and both a Level 3 & 5 in Management and Leadership.
I have a real passion for Early Years and the importance of creating an environment where children are happy, confident, thriving and inspired through 'awe and wonder'. While also creating strong parent partnerships where a parent/carer feels part of their child's journey with us and are confident leaving their children in our care.
Also important to me, and alongside my staff team is creating a home feel for the children and their families as well as a working environment for the staff team where all are welcomed to be their individual selves and are encouraged and supported to achieve their career goals.
Hello, my name is Sharon and I have been working in childcare for the last 25 years with the last 7 years as a Deputy Manager.
