About the Managing Director

I have been a working mother with three children and I appreciate the difficulties of reconciling parenthood with a working life.


Flying Start Day Nurseries are my response to parents who need a secure, reliable and stable environment for their children while they combine a family with a career.


Many people find it hard at first to leave their child in the care of others, but I feel the opportunities provided in a caring and loving nursery will soon dispel these fears, leaving parents able to relax and enjoy thier work.


Flying Start aims not only to provide quality day care but also give the children quality nursery education. My career in teaching began over 30 years ago, and in that time I have taught in a number of state and independent schools. My posts covered the complete infant/junior age range, and I also taught pre-school children. I was Head of an infant department, complete with its own nursery. My training and experience in teaching children with specific learning difficulties has deepened my understanding of the basic learning processes children need to acquire.


Flying Start Barnesmead opened in September 1994. The Moorlands site opened in 1999 in order to meet the demands of a central waiting list. It is the aim of both nurseries to provide your child with the best quality care in a stimulating environment which will enable them to develop and reach their full potential.

We feel that the nurseries will give the special children you entrust to us a caring, loving and stimulating flying start!


When the children leave Flying Start we will have prepared them for the next stage in their schooling by ensuring they have self-confidence, independence and a positive attitude to learning and all-round development.
