About the employer

Where it all began
I left school knowing I wanted to work with children and in July 1994 I qualified as a Nursery Nurse. With this qualification, I began working in the private day nursery sector. After my first child was born, I was encouraged to establish a childcare capability and extended that as a childminding service to other families. It was successful, and Ofsted graded it as OUTSTANDING. After sixteen years, an opportunity arose for me to expand our service in Stockton On the Forest. With the wonderful out and indoor facilities, it was an opportunity not to be missed. I would like the opportunity to share my knowledge and experiences with new and existing families and we can continue the Sticky Fingers Journey together.
