Nursery management team
Manager of Commercial Services
Chris has worked at the University for the past 7 years as the manager of Commercial Services; his remit includes not only Nursery but Unique Fitness and Lifestyle, accommodation services, catering, bars and shops.
I have been at the Nursery since 2000 when I began working as Deputy Head; in 2006 I took over as Nursery Manager I qualified to level 3 in 1998 through the BTEC National Vocational Qualification Award. I attained a level 4 in management through Edexcel in 2007 and graduated with BA (hons) in Early Years Childhood Studies 1:2 in 2011. To help my team to achieve further training I obtained my A1 Assessors qualification in 2003.
I fully recognise the importance of acquiring the appropriate qualifications, training, skills and knowledge in early years, so continue to update my own development in all areas.
I have three young children of my own so fully understand how important it is to find a provision of a high standard where you feel happy to leave your child and know that they will be safe and well cared for.
