Veshi Dade

Nursery Manager

I hold an Early Years Professional Status and have managed a local Ofsted 'Outstanding' setting. I have a paediatric first aid qualification, and am the nursery SEN Co. 

My passion is to inspire curiosity in children, and to bring about a learning environment that provokes shared thinking, values individuality and promotes inclusion and participation.

I have two teenage children and spend a lot of time outdoors with my dog exploring the natural area on our doorstep.
