Natalie Barrett

Head of Unit Rising Fives Level 5

Hello, my name is Natalie,

I have been working at KDN since September 2012. I am level 3 qualified in childcare and education and also have my level 5 in Leadership and Management and I am paediatric first aid trained. I am Head of unit in Rising Fives, I step up as Assistant Deputy Manager in the afternoons when Suzanne our Nursery Manager isn’t present and Steph steps up to Manager.

I have a level 2 qualification in counseling and I am also a deputy designated safeguarding lead at the setting. My role keeps me busy and on my toes, I am very punctual and proactive, and I have a passion for working with children. There is no better reward in watching the children in the Rising Fives progress and develop and supporting them on their journey to school.

What do you like doing in your spare time?
