Helen said: “I love all aspects of working in the nursery, in particular watching the children grow, develop and thrive. I also enjoy building relationships with staff, children and their families. Having worked within the nursery for as long as I have, and being employed in each role, it has given me a depth of knowledge and experience across the board.

“I am delighted to become early years manager and very proud to represent the award-winning nursery in this role. I’m looking forward to building on our already excellent reputation and drive the nursery forward alongside the staff team.

"I aim to continue to build on our Early Years Curriculum to provide the children in nursery with the best possible care and education.”

Alexis Johnson, chief executive of Doncaster Deaf Trust, said: “Helen is a caring and hardworking member of our team and we are so pleased she has now taken this further step in her career to become the manager of our wonderful nursery provision.

"She is a credit to Doncaster Deaf Trust and the children and staff she supports, and I know the experience she brings will help the nursery continue to grow and develop.”
