Iwona 

Nursery Manager

Hi my name is Iwona. I have been working in childcare for 15 years. I hold a bachelor degree as a primary school teacher. I believe that working with children is very rewarding. Seeing the children develop from babies to young people is absolutely amazing. I love to see children smiling, also admire their endless energy and creativity. I have been part of Panda Family for almost 6 years and I enjoyed every moment of it.  
In my free time I love to spend my time with my family. Whenever possible like to travel and visit new places.

Megan 

Nursery Manager

I have worked in childcare for 5 years and spent the majority of this time at panda. I love so much about my job that it is hard to pin point what I enjoy the most. One of the most rewarding parts of the job is being a part of each child’s journey, and watching them grow, learn and and develop into the amazing little people they all are. I have completed my degree whilst working at panda and have had some great opportunities to progress alongside, which I am ever great full for. In my free time I love to spend time with my family and friends and watch rugby.

Cath 

Nursery Cook

Hi my name is Cath and I am the nursery chef at Panda. I have worked in catering for over 30 years but have been a nursery chef for the last 16 years. I really enjoy all aspects of my job especially when the children thank me for their food that they have enjoyed. I also enjoy cycling and going to live gigs and the theatre.

Aga 

Nursery Nurse

Hello, My name is Aga. I have worked at Panda Nursery for 8 years now and I have enjoyed every day of being there as a vital part of the team. I particularly found it very rewarding seeing a child Flourish and develop new skills. While the children are in my care I make educational activities as fun as possible so they go home and remember the day and what they learned, I want the children to look back and remember Panda Nursery as one of the best moments of their childhoods.
The highlight of my day within Panda is watching and supporting our future generation on their journey from childhood and as a Nursery Nurse I have an incredible opportunity to do so. In my spare time I like to cook and find new recipes. I love Arts & Crafts, so I like to do DIYs and make gifts for special occasions. My favourite hobby would be going hiking and taking my dog on long walks with my family and friends.

Angie 

Nursery Nurse

Hello, I am Angie
I have worked in childcare for 22 years. It is the best job ever as it changes everyday and it’s never boring. I love the children and seeing their characters and development grow as they get to school age. When I am not working at Panda, I look after my nephew who keeps me on my toes and my spending time with my three cats. I also enjoy crocheting when my cats let me!

Tara 

Nursery Nurse

I have worked at panda for nearly 8 years, before this while I was studying I worked at several other nurseries while on placement for around 3 years.
The thing I love about my job is just working with the children and watching them grow and learn. I find it very rewarding when I see that the children have progressed in an area of learning knowing that I have helped them do this.
In my spare time I like to spend time with my friends and family making lots of memories. I enjoy reading, jigsaws and colouring as I find this very therapeutic.

Anita

Nursery Nurse 

I have been working at Panda Day Nursery for nearly three years now which was the start of my career in childcare. I love working with children and I get so much joy out of seeing them smiling and being happy. I find working in childcare incredibly rewarding as children are always learning new skills and as an adult you can help them fulfil their potential.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. One of my favourite things to do is going to the cinema.
