  • Jasmina Haigh
      Jasmina HaighRegional Manager
    I began my career in childcare in 1991 when I came to England from Serbia to be an au-pair. I thoroughly enjoyed working with children and decided to gain formal childcare qualifications and completed the NNEB Diploma in 1996. Since then I have worked in a variety of settings, mainly in supervisory/ managerial roles and these include crèches, holiday play schemes, day nurseries and children’s centres. I obtained my BA (Hons) Degree in Early Years and Leadership in 2014 and have since then progressed in my career working as a Senior Manager and Area/ Regional manager roles; supporting, advising and coaching managers. I joined Childcare & Learning Group as Regional Manager in August 2018  and am really looking forward to working alongside senior management, managers and their teams. For the Working Mums’ group of nurseries, I am the Regional Manager directly responsible for our Battersea Setting.
