Meet the team

Sarah Kingsman

Nursery Manager

My name is Sarah Kingsman and I am the nursery manager here at Meopham.

I have worked in childcare for 13 years. I previously worked as deputy manager here at Meopham before becoming manager in July 2014 . Since being here I have gained so much experience, I have completed my NVQ level 3 in childcare and education. I went on to do an Early Years Degree with Honours at Greenwich University, followed by the Early Years Professional Status qualification.

I thoroughly enjoy working alongside my team and to develop the best possible relationship with my parents and family’s. All my staff are fully aware of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework and strive to ensure that the framework is underpinned within the nursery. .

As a nursery manager I have always strived to provide the highest quality childcare, I believe that working in child care is a passion and I ensure that all my staff are passionate about their job.

Each child is unique to us and here at Meopham we ensure every child is treated as an individual my team aim to provide unique experiences based upon the children’s interests. We feel it is important that you do not only join the nursery, but you become part of our extended family.
