Hi I’m Jay. I joined Little Adventures Nurseries in November 2021 as Nursery Development Manager and have progressed to being the Head of Nursery Operations. I have been working in the Early Years sector since 2009. In this time, I have held various positions from Nursery Nurse to Area Manager overseeing 7 nurseries. I feel extremely fortunate to work in Early Years as I know how important these years are for children. I completed my BA (Hons) in Early Years Education in 2017 and this has helped me further my own knowledge of how children learn and develop. I have a passion for ensuring that the teams are trained to a high standard to deliver the best quality care. I have a son of my own so understand how important it is to ensure that you choose the right setting for your children. In my free time I like nothing more than exploring with my little family and we absolutely love baking together. I am currently studying for my Level 7 in Strategic Leadership which is supporting me to help the company grow.
