Kikiland Nursery Staff
My name is Emma and I am the nursery Manager
I have been in childcare for 12 years starting of as an apprentice then working my way up from being a nursery nurse , to a deputy manager and now to a nursery manager. I have my NVQ Level 2 and 3 in childcare, as well as my NVQ 4 in leadership and management. Over the years I have attended many training courses to help develop my knowledge in working with children and following the early years curriculum.
I believe the importance of providing a positive role model for them, I have found my job so rewarding as I have been able to see all the children I have cared for develop and flourish within the happy and caring environment that I have provided for them. I find it so rewarding to know that I had an importance in each individual child's development and learning.
I love my job as I get to play a part in helping children to develop. I find it incredibly rewarding working as part of a team who support each other, the children and their parents/carers. Each child has a unique personality and that’s what makes my job so enjoyable.

Interests: Days out with he family, cinema, music and spa breaks
Qualifications: NVQ 2 in childcare, studying for NVQ 3 and SEN
Why I work in early years: I have had many different jobs and taken many courses, but the one thing that has never changed is my passion for making a difference to a child's development. Supporting them and encouraging them to make friends, teaching them something new and comforting them when they are poorly or sad, theses are just a few things that I love to do on a daily basis. In the future after completing my level 3 I would like to work my way up to a deputy manager, progressing further to manager a few years after that.
The most rewarding part of my job is helping support and guide children through the early years foundation stage. I enjoy promoting children’s learning and development and seeing them thrive.
