The Bumbles Play Cafe Team
I have enjoyed a 28 year career as a trained nursery nurse and I have worked extensively with the under five age group.
My career has seen me work as a nursery nurse, day nursery manager, night nanny, and a private day nanny in Cambridgeshire, Paris and London.
I am a qualified NVQ level 3 nursery nurse, as well as holding paediatric first aid, enhanced DBS and food hygiene certificates.
I live in Twickenham with my husband and two children. Both of my children attend senior schools in the local area.
I went into nursing when I was 18 and loved a 22 year career as a nurse. I trained and worked at Charing Cross Hospital for five years, then as a deputy sister in the community.
Seven years ago I wanted a change and retrained as a child minder. In this time I've loved being an extension of the children's families and I will miss caring for them.
I am trained in paediatric first aid and also hold enhanced DBS and food hygiene certificates.
I'm married, a mum of two teenage boys and I've lived in Twickenham my whole life. The little spare time I have is spent with friends or watching my two very sporty boys playing football and cricket.
