My child has developed very well since being here. Staff are extremely friendly and support all pupils well it's just a very lovely place.
Teddy really enjoys seeing the staff and is very eager to come to nursery. His development has come on leaps and bounds. The staff are really pleasant and welcoming.
I have worked for Townsend Montessori nurseries for around 13 years, starting my Journey at Port Regis as a nursery Nurse in the 2's room, then becoming a deputy supervisor in the babies' room. After a year or so, I became supervisor of a very successful baby room, then deputy manager of the nursery. Not long after, I was asked to become manager.
Eventually, I was asked to open a brand new nursery in Maidstone, where I spent a year building the nursery up and shortly went on to have my own baby.
After taking a year out I decided that I would like to return to work and am now manager of the Margate Nursery. I like working for Townsend Montessori, as it has helped me progress even whilst starting a family. Townsend Montessori have helped me gain experience on every aspect of childcare and providing a caring, stimulating environment for all children.
I have been working for the company for just over 2 years, during which I have gained the experience of working with all ages starting off in pre-school as a nursery nurse. I then worked in the twos room as a senior and now currently work in the baby room as the room supervisor. Once gaining my degree in early childhood studies I went straight into childcare as I wanted to put everything into practice to make children’s experience of nursery the best it can be both educational and fun.
I chose to work for Townsend Montessori as it is a growing company that put the children first and offer a lot of experience and development for both children and staff.
