Alice originally began her employment with us as our cook, in August 2010. Alice expressed her desire to work with the children in a more caring role and in 2015 we were able to make this happen. Alice works in our Toddler room as a Nursery Practitioner, 5 days a week, term time. She has 2 children of her own, Declan and Kenzie.

“I first was interested in childcare when I was at school and did my work experience at a school nursery. After school I chose a different path and became a chef. Many years later after my 2 nd son was born, I had the opportunity to become part of the Broad Oaks family as the cook. It was here that I realised I still had an interest in childcare and Georgina thought that I had the skills and patience to become a practitioner. I began my training and completed my Level 2; I am now nearing the completing of my Level 3.

I have been at Broad Oaks nearly 10 years and I feel such pride in supporting children on their journey in their Early Years. It is extremely rewarding watching them develop and grow before setting off on their own school journey. Working with your children is a blessing and I love helping them discover new abilities and skills whilst playing and having fun. I work among a great team of people who are not just colleagues but friends who I can turn to for support and guidance. This is not just a place of work, it is a family and I am privileged to be apart of it”.
