We actively encourage our staff to transfer their knowledge into practice.

Sandra Henry – Group Owner / Manager of Leander Road

I have been the owner and manager of Loving Hands nursery since September 2005.

My role as owner is varied, from making business decisions to connecting with the children. I am responsible for all operational and regulatory aspects, building a vision which is shared by the whole team. I manage by effectively leading, inspiring potential and will engage my team to deliver exceptional care and education.

I love to work in partnership with my parents by developing a parent advisory committee to facilitate communication, share information and allow parent input. Alongside my management team, I spend time leading by example within my staff team to reflect on practice and improve on the quality of care and education.

I am always keen to continue my professional development for myself and my staff team.

I love what I do, and I am 110% committed to my staff, children and families.

Jyoti, Manager – Norbury

I am the manager of Loving Hands Norbury.

I have been working in early years since 2002 and achieved Early Years Teacher status in 2014.

I have worked in variety of work places including Day nurseries, schools and children’s centres.

I am enthusiastic, passionate and a hands-on manager. I am always prepared to go that extra mile to improve and develop the care for children, parents and staff. I am highly organised and have a positive attitude.

I constantly strive to enhance the practice and the environment that we provide. I have continued to professionally develop myself and the more I read and listen to research the more motivated I become.

I love seeing children complete a task that they have been struggling with or see staff complete a new qualification which makes a difference to their practice.

In my spare time I like watching movies, reading, tidying up, completing a fitness session, healthy cooking, and gardening. I often enjoy attending weddings and lately I have been enjoying travelling.
