My name is Gemma and I am currently the manager at our site at Morrill, I am also currently in the Senior Manager position.
I started with Tiptoes August 2011 and became a manager in September 2017. During my time as an active practitioner I worked in all ages groups and have had equal experience in all ages. I am currently completing my level 5 in Childhood Studies at the University of Hull.
The most rewarding part of working in a nursery environment is going into the rooms and seeing all the children and what they are getting up to daily, it is so lovely to see them all get very excited when I go to see them as I do not work with them daily. As a manager the most rewarding factor is ensuring the children’s safety and happiness. This includes ensuring myself and my team at Morrill Street make the nursery the best possible place for the children to learn and grow in. As a senior manager I ensure that all other managers have the correct support and guidance.
A little information about myself:
I started Tiptoes when I was 18years old and this was my first ever full-time job, I have watched Tiptoes grow over the years and I am so pleased I have been able to be part of the journey. I live with my partner, my stepson and my little dog Beau. I am currently pregnant with my first baby and will be going on maternity soon.
