  • Louise
      LouiseRegional Manager
    I began my career with Cranbrook Nursery & Preschool at Buttercup Barn in May 2000 as a Nursery Practitioner. I then moved to Ivy Cottage as a Deputy Manager and in 2002 I became the Manager. I moved over to Clover Court Nursery in 2010 and at the start of 2018 extended to London’s Working Mums’ East Sheen nursery where I supported during transition between managers. In August 2018, I was appointed Regional Manager for Childcare & Learning Group. My childcare journey began when I was 13 years old, having done a work experience in a Nursery. From that point I knew I wanted this to be my career and to make a difference in the start of a child’s life. I have a BA Hons in Childcare and Education. For the Working Mums’ group of nurseries, I am the Regional Manager directly responsible for our Battersea setting.
