Head of Early Years Practice BA Hons Early Years Education
Alice spent the beginning of her early years career at our nursery in Atworth, working and training her way up from Nursery Apprentice to Deputy Manager and Head of Pre-School and now Head of Early Years Practice. Her passion and enthusiasm was inspirational in helping the team achieve an 'outstanding' grade from Ofsted and completing her studies for her degree.
Alice's favourite things in the whole world are her cats, who she cherishes and gives foodie names to. So if you're small, cute and fluffy, you're already in her good books.
Katie is part of one of the largest families in the UK and so has always been surrounded by lots of children when growing up. She loved every second of it though and so it always seemed like an easy decision for her when she first embarked upon her childcare career. She loves the way that childcarers play such an important part in the lives of the children and really enjoys giving them the best start she can.
