Head Office Team
As a working mother of two girls, I know how important it is to feel happy and reassured when you drop off your child at nursery. My aim as CEO is to provide a chain of high-quality day nurseries with friendly, caring and professional staff in which the welfare and happiness of the children in our care is our number one priority.
I was given the opportunity to join Townsend Montessori Nurseries in 2008, which enabled my passion and motivation for childcare to grow and shape my career. I have studied childcare for many years and I have a BA Honours Degree (First Class) in Early Childhood Education and Care. I have progressed through the company to my current position as Operations manager, which I enjoy being able to work with all the nurseries within the company to support staff and children to develop exciting environments for the children to grow and create their own learning experiences. My experience over the years within my role and as a parent to two teenage children has enabled me to view my work from both a professional and personal standpoint. Our dedication to improving quality of childcare and learning experiences for children is mutually respected
I first got into childcare as I have a real passion for helping young children grow and develop and become confident as individuals. I've been with Townsend Montessori for eight and a half years because they pride themselves on providing a clean, welcoming learning environment for the children, as well as having positive relationships with parents, carers, children and staff alike. I have a BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Education and Care and a Level 3 Childcare qualification.
My name is Tracey Atkins and I have worked for the company for over 10 years. I have two children, aged 11 and 6. I am the Accounts Manager for all of our nurseries. My role is very varied; I take care of everything financial in relation to your parent accounts, procurement, and payroll, to name but a few. I love working for a company which truly believes in providing great quality childcare in amazing settings, giving the best learning experiences for all children. My daughter attended The Grange Montessori; she thoroughly enjoyed her time there and I believe her learning journey there helped her with her start to school life.
