I have worked in childcare for over 10 years. Recently, I joined the team at Yew Trees working in the Preschool, Breakfast and Afterschool Clubs and also as a driver for the school runs.

I am married with two boys aged 11 and 18 and 2 dogs (a mad husky and a cockapoo).


Abigail Snaden

Key Worker

I started working at Yew Trees in January 2017. I have a Level 3 Diploma in Early Years as an Early Years Educator, as well as holding a Level 2 in Children and Young People’s workforce. I work across all the areas of the nursery and have experience in all of the rooms. I enjoy going to exercise classes as well as being part of a skittle team during the week and catching up with my friends on the weekends.

Kelly Bowden

Assistant Manager

Having worked at Yew Trees for the past 16 years I became deputy manager in February 2018.

I have previously worked in the preschool room as a keyworker and in most recent years as a forest school leader and also ran and organised the holiday club.

I am very passionate about outdoor learning and providing children with opportunities which they may not experience at home.

I live with my husband and 8 year old daughter. In my spare time I enjoy walking baking and spending time with family and friends.
