Manager's Message

Hello, my name is Joan - I have worked in childcare for more years than I care to remember! I have a wide range of experience in childcare, over 30 years (ok, I remembered). I have held several positions in Pre-schools, Day Nurseries, Creches and as a Private Nanny. 

I have moved from Paint Pots in Harefield where I was the deputy, to manage Orchard Lane.

Throughout my career I have continued to update and expand my knowledge through training and look forward to putting more of this into practice. 

I am interested in learning more about Makaton and I enjoy working with any children who have additional needs and I am looking forward to working with my new team and getting to know the parents and children.
