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.
My name is Louise and I am the Deputy Manager and the Montessori teacher. I have worked for the company for 7 years, starting as a nursery Nurse, then training to be a Montessori Teacher, and finally I progressing to be the Deputy Manager.
I love working with children because every day is different and you get to see the children growing and developing as they move through the different rooms.
