Michelle

Founder / Director

Michelle

My name is Michelle Josephs and I am the crazy lady who runs Denmead Day Care Nursery and Preschool and owns Denmead Day Care Wrap. If you need me I am quite often at the nursery. I am a single mum with two grown young adults my daughter is 18 and my son is 21 who I am extremely proud of. I am passionate about the job I do and have been running my business for almost 10 years. Prior to being a nursery manager, I was a childminder for 10 years.

I enjoy socialising and can chat the hind legs of anyone else I meet. I firmly believe in helping the community and supporting families in the best way I can.

Suzanne

Deputy Manager

Suzanne

Hello my name is Suzanne. I'm Deputy Manager here at DDC and am a busy working mum to 3 gorgeous children, 17,11 and an under 1!

I love anything vintage or retro and I drive a classic VW Beatle. I have a very chatty, smiley and colourful personality to match my ever-changing hair colours.

I have worked with children and families in a number of settings from nurseries to children centers over the past 21 years and have experience not only early years but in many aspects of Family Support.

I absolutely love working with the little ones, no day is ever the same and I never get bored seeing them all grow and learn and turn into their own quirky individual little person.

Jess

Admin

Jess

Hi, I'm Jess. I have been working at Denmead Day Care for nearly 8 years. I mainly work in the office doing admin for Michelle and the team but I help cover in the Nursery when I'm needed.

I enjoy working with children because they are all funny characters with individual personalities that make me laugh. I like spending time with my family and friends and looking after my tortoise Terrance. I also help out with a local Guide group every week.

I have worked with children for a number of years beginning as a nanny and then working in a baby room and preschool before joining Michelle and the team three years ago.

I hold a level 5 in early years and am looking forward to completing my level 6 this year. I particularly enjoy the outdoors and Messy Play.

Hello, I’m Sarah and I work part-time at DDC Nursery and Preschool.

My main role is assisting over the lunchtime, getting lunch bags on the tables, heating up food and covering for staff when they go on their lunch break. I also help out at other busy times when needed.

Outside of work I’m kept busy by my two daughters (and our two cats!).

When I do get some spare time I like a good book, a good film or time to catch up with family and friends.
