Hi my name is Karen, I previously worked at the nursery for 10 years as a practitioner then as the toddler room senior. Since returning from maternity leave, I had the opportunity to join the team again but this time as the nursery cook. My passion has always been to work with young children in early years since I left school at 16 years old. Seeing the children come into the dining room is great fun as they chat away to staff and always have a question or two for me. The job role I have now gives me a chance to be in all of the rooms and greet the children with a loving smile and seen as the food lady.
