My name is Poppy and I am the nursery manager here at Good Buddies Daycare. I have worked in childcare for 8 years and began my career in 2007 as a nursery assistant. I enrolled on the NVQ Level 2 & 3 in Children’s, Learning and Development to become a qualified practitioner.
I have now completed my Level 5 Diploma in Team Leading and Management and have gained valuable experience working with a range of families from different social backgrounds.
I have taken part in lot's of additional training including ICAN speech and language, Paediatric First Aid, Level 2 Food Safety, Special Educational Needs including Autism and Inclusion, Advanced Safeguarding and Child Protection to list a few.
I have also taken part in an ‘Early Excellence’ project which is training specialising in the best care for two year olds.
I thoroughly enjoy working with children and watching their characters develop, I also enjoy the partnerships we forge with parents and carers and the support we can offer. As a parent of three children I know how important good quality care is and how much it means as a parent that you feel able to approach staff with ideas and questions about the setting. I therefore operate an open door policy and would like to welcome you to come and see me at anytime convenient to you.
