Jenny Blin
Business Manager

I joined the nursery in 2016. As a parent of a toddler I can easily relate to the issues and expectations of parents, who have to leave their little ones to be looked after by someone else.

My role here is to make sure that you as a parent feel informed and involved in what we do. Ask me about upcoming events, the parent newsletter and the Parent Partnership Group.

I have lived in Hampton for seven years, so when I decided to change my career to childcare, the local nursery in the heart of community was the natural choice.

I love working with children, seeing their achievements and supporting each child as they take new steps in life.
