Meet The Manager

Hello my name is Sue and I am a manager at Kids Around the Clock Brookfield Gardens.
I began my journey into childcare at the tender age of 16 when I started my college course and 2 years later gained my NNEB qualification. Firstly I started work in a school nursery on an RAF base and when I had my two children, Laura and Ryan, I took a position running the crèche and toddler groups on the base.
After 7 years I returned to Manchester where I started work at Benchill Children‘s Centre in the Sure Start Crèche as a nursery nurse full time as my children were growing up. Unfortunately the City Council made the decision to close all children’s centres and in 2011 I joined Kids Around the Clock.
My career progressed quickly becoming baby room leader, deputy manager and then manager of our then Woodhouse Park site, we moved to Brookfield Gardens and I couldn’t be happier in my role. I completed a university course to gain my level 5 in Early Years at the age of 48 so proving your never too old to progress in educating yourself. I am the settings SENCO and am currently completing the EY SENCO award. I love the parent partnerships and watching our children grow and progress in their development during their time with us.
In my spare time I love to spend time with family and friends, watching documentaries on Netflix, having a meal out with my husband, Steve, and cuddles with our dog Penny.

Hello, my name is Jade and I am a manager at Kids Around the Clock, Brookfield Gardens.

I began my passion for childcare very early as I grew up having a large young family around me with a younger brother and many younger cousins who I loved to care for.

Once I left school, I went to college and completed my level 3 in Early Years education. This is where my career began to grow; as soon as I left college, I got my first Childcare job with Kids Around the Clock. Initially, I was only working two days a week but I loved it that much, after a week, I went to full time!!

Since starting my career with Kids Around the Clock in 2012, I have been able to grow and develop so much within the company, I have been able to work in all rooms. I first started off in pre school and once my skills and leadership grew, I became the room leader in the 2-year-old room.

I have always had a passion working in the baby room and love to be able to see all the babies develop so quickly and in such a short period of time, I have completed numerous training for babies and once we moved to Woodhouse Park, I became the room leader for our baby room; I was so nervous at first but I knew this was my passion and this is where my skill set would be utilised the most.

I love having a strong parent partnership and the amount of trust the parents have whilst building a strong foundation for the babies.

On the weekends and in my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have two little girls, my first was born in 2018 and my second in 2022! I grew up in Stockport and eventually bought my own house in 2016 where I moved in with my partner, Chris of 13 years.

I am a massive foodie and Italian cuisine is my favourite!! I enjoy cosy film nights in with friends and love watching documentaries in my spare time.
