Hi everyone, my name is Vanessa and I am the manager at our site at Bricknell.
I started at Tiptoes in August 2016 and became the manager in December 2018. During my time as an active practitioner I have had the most experience working with babies and toddlers. I have my level 6 in Childhood Studies, myself and my team got an OUTSTANDING OFSTED Report in April 2019 which is one of the biggest achievements in my career so far.
The most rewarding part of my job is being able to help children grow and achieve to their full potential daily and being able to provide the best play and learning experiences. As a manager I believe the most important aspects is working alongside parents in order to ensure home life and nursery life is compatible, and having good team ethics between myself and the staff in order to ensure the best experience is being delivered for each child within our care.
A little information about myself:
I was born in Portugal and lived in South Africa for 10 years of my life before moving to Hull. Tiptoes was my first ever full-time job. My loved ones are the most important aspect of my life, and I am currently in the process of moving in with my partner into our first home together. I love travelling and being able to see the world to experience different cultures.
