My name is Beth Merriman. I have worked within the early years for the last 12 years, during this time I have studied for my degree in Early Childhood Studies and gained Early Years Professional Status. I have worked with Busy Bees for the last 2 years managing the Fulham Nursery. 

I am very excited to be joining the team at Queen of Hearts and to be meeting all the practitioners, children and families. 

I am very passionate about my work within the early years, I really enjoy watching the children develop and ensuring they are given the best opportunities during their time with us.

I pride myself on working with my team to create a positive environment for the children to grow into confident learners.
