Hello, my name is Sarah and I have worked in childcare for 25 years now. I have worked for Portico Nursery Group since the company opened. I have previously been the manager at Portico Lodge and Portico at Moss Bank, and became Area Manager in 2012. I am an Early Years Professional and have The National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership.
As area manager, I visit all our settings during the week and support the managers and their teams to help ensure we offer the best childcare and education to our families. I have lots of experience to be able to support the teams hands on in the rooms, while supporting managers with leadership, management, and the professional development of their teams.
I love my job as no day is the same. I feel very privileged to work with all our amazing teams and see our team members develop their careers. However, my favourite part is seeing the children grow. It’s always a sad day when they leave for school, although the greatest reward is knowing that we have played a part in ensuring they are ready for the next stage of their life.
