Amy Salt-Dean

Nursery Manager

 I have over 15 years experience in childcare and have worked in private day-care nurseries, independent nurseries and play groups for children with Special Educational Needs. I have an eye for detail and I enjoy the hands on approach of being a manager and role modelling practice to my staff team.

I have a BA Honors degree in Early Child Hood Studies and Psychology and I also have my Early years professional Status.

I enjoy spending time with my daughter who attends the nursery within our Baby room. I also like spending time with my family and friends.
