Hello, my name is Maxine.
I am your Nursery Deputy Manager and Designated Safeguarding Lead.
I started my Journey at KDN in June 2004 fresh out of college after spending a year studying Intermediate Health and Social Care then a further two years studying my Level 3 CACHE Diploma in Childcare and Education.
During my time here, I have worked my way up from Nursery practitioner to Head of Unit in Rising Fives then up to Deputy Manager in September 2007. To further my knowledge in helping me to achieve the highest standard of practice for my role I gained my Level 5 NVQ Diploma in Management & Leadership in April 2016 and I am Paediatric First Aid Trained.
Over the years I have gained a lot of valuable learning experience in leading the team and the day to day management of an early years setting. I have been part of KDN for many years and hopefully many more to come.
Why do you like working at KDN?
“I have made some amazing memories and formed lifelong friends that will be part of me forever.”
What do you like doing in your spare time?
“I like to spend time with my family and friends, being outdoors and dining out.”
What are some of your interests?
“I am a big fan of Take That I love going to their concerts, I also love to go to the theatre.”
