Management team for Whitstable

  • Diane Davies - Townsend Montessori Whitstable manager

    Diane Davies

    Nursery Manager

    I have been with the company for three years. I started off at our Margate nursery as a senior nursery nurse, progressed up to Deputy manger and then came over to Whitstable as an assistant manager and now I am the manager.

    I became a nursery nurse over 18 years ago because I really wanted to make a difference to the lives of the children that I looked after. I have a real passion for working with young children.

    I chose to work for Townsend Montessori as I wanted to not only learn about the Montessori, but having worked for large companies in the past, I wanted to work for a smaller, more independent caring company.
