Hi, my name is Denise and I am the joint manager of our baby nursery.
I have 22 years experience of working with children this includes being a childminder for 16 years before joining Smartys 10 years ago.
I have achieved paediatric first aid, food hygiene, Safeguarding level 1 and level 2, ENCO level 1 and 2, let’s go creative with babies, effective team meetings, health and safety unit 2, hearing impairment workshop, autism awareness and moving and handling.
I am responsible for the day to day running of the baby nursery, guiding staff in their roles, building good relationships with parents, children and staff. I like to help and advise all parents where necessary.
I work with children because I am a loving, caring person who thrives to see the children grow and develop from babies to toddlers. I aim to provide the best possible care for all of the children, meeting their individual needs. I feel I have the best job in the world.
I always try to present myself in a professional way and as a mum to 3 boys I am very friendly and welcoming to all staff and parents, a true team player offering care and support to my team.
