Deputy Manager
 

Hi, my name is Emily  and I have been working in Early years since I was 17. I have a degree in Early Childhood Studies and my Early Years Professional status. I love working with children watching them explore new activities, grow and develop. I have worked in a variety of different settings who have used different approaches to learning.

 

In my spare time I enjoy going for walks out in the New Forest, baking lots of yummy goodies and I love to sew making various creations. I have recently learnt how to make children’s clothes. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to make my own wardrobe!!

Manager
 

Hi, I’m Beki and I started my Brambles adventure in 2019 as a Practitioner. In 2020 I became a Senior Practitioner and I have now progressed to the role of Manager. I love that Brambles has given me such wonderful opportunities and I have gained so much experience from it. I have worked in childcare for eight years and in 2020 I started studying the Diploma for the Early Years Senior Practitioner Level 5 and since then, I have learnt new skills that I have been able to take to my practice. I love watching the children grow and being part of their development is very rewarding.

In my spare time I enjoy walking in the countryside or visiting the beach, especially when the sun is setting! I love going to the gym and spending time with family and friends.
