Meet the Manager

Mica, Catford Manager

My journey in early years education began when I was just 18. With an unwavering passion for childcare, I’ve diligently climbed the ranks, transitioning from a nursery assistant to a dedicated manager.

My approach revolves around putting the child at the centre of everything we do and fostering strong partnerships with parents. By embracing this child-centred philosophy and collaborative parent engagement, I aim to create a nurturing and positive learning environment for all children under my care.
