I joined the team at Riverview in August 2014.
I am a qualified Nursery Nurse and have worked in Early Years for the past 16 years. I have worked in a variety of settings including: private day care, Local Authority, The Prison Service and in my own home as a childminder. Prior to working at Riverview I had worked in children's centres in the London Borough of Sutton for 8 years.
I love working in a children's centre and believe they are a fantastic resource for families and a vital part of any community. My role as Family Services Co-Ordinator is a varied and interesting one and I have really enjoyed meeting all the families. As part of my role I am responsible for organising adult learning and short courses and also supporting volunteers at the centre.
If there is a course you would like to see at the children's centre or you are interested in knowing more about volunteer opportunities, please pop in for a chat; I work Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
I have first hand knowledge of the challenges and joys of raising a young family with 3 children of my own who keep me on my toes.
