Hi, my name is Steph, I am preschool’s room manager. I have worked for the company for almost 10years, I'm SVQ qualified & first aid trained. The thing I like most about working with the children is building the foundation to their learning experiences. I enjoy messy play, slime & our work bench. Most of all I love creating a good bond with the children and giving them the best care, learning experiences & education I can before they leave for school.
