Allow us to introduce you to some of team Honeysuckle….
I’m Natalie the manager here at Honeysuckle Day Nursery. I have worked with young children for over 16 years starting as a nursery practitioner moving to room leader, deputy and now manager. I have a foundation degree in early years and a BA honours in education which I completed in 2011. I am passionate about what I do and am committed to ensuring each child receives outstanding care and experiences during their time at Honeysuckle.
I helped set up the nursery back in 2013 following the birth of my daughter. I strive upon making the nursery a fantastic environment for children and parents alike as well as creating a happy and positive atmosphere for the staff to work in. I really pride myself and my team on the nurseries home from home feel and believe this is what makes us parents first choice for day care in the area.
It really is a joy to come to work at Honeysuckle. I love working in the rooms which really keeps me in touch with how the children are developing. I am a proud mum to two children now, who have both attended Honeysuckle over the years.
We love being a positive presence within the community and look forward to continuing this in the future.
My name is Danielle and I’ve been part of the management team at Honeysuckle Day Nursery since joining in 2014. Since then I have gained a level 2 in team leadership and a level 3 qualification in management.
After a 7-year career in graphic design I decided to take the plunge and follow my passion and interest in child development in 2005. It was then that I gained my NVQ level 3 qualification in early years care & education alongside other training such as Makaton, den building, positive behaviour management and safeguarding but to mention a few. I understand what it means to find a safe, secure and stimulating environment for your own child. I too had to make this important decision for my son many years ago.
As the room senior of Pre-school, I strive to provide stimulating activities for the children that create wow moments for their learning and development. I get involved in a variety of play activities and never shy of getting messy and dirty.
I feel a great sense of pride when the children that leave our care are confident and independent, welcoming the challenges that primary school brings.
