Manager's Message

Hello, my name is Sam - I am the manager of Paint Pots St Mark's. I started working in the childcare sector as an apprentice in 2003. I have worked in a few different settings over the years in various different roles. I started working at Paint Pots in 2011 at the Waterloo Road site, and I soon moved to open St Mark's Paint Pots in 2012, where I have since been the manager. 

I have a passion for looking after children, and watching them learn and grow every day, being a part of their journey is such a special thing and I feel especially lucky to experience this every day. I have a daughter who also attended Paint Pots until she went to school and she loved going to pre-school- even asking me to take her in the holidays!
