Supervisor

I’m a supervisor in the Toddler Room and have worked at the Yew Trees for many years. (Too many to count!) During my time at Yew Trees I have worked in the Baby room, but now enjoy the developing characters of the Toddlers.

I trained at Weston College where I gained my NVQ Level 3 in Childcare. I also have Paediatric First Aid and Basic Awareness in Child Protection.
Outside Nursery I enjoy socialising with friends and family, holidays abroad with my husband and 2 children.

Any other spare time is spent selling Avon which gets me out and about and enables me to meet new people.

Hannah Keating

Hannah Keating

Keyworker

I started at Yew Trees in 2011 but since this time I moved to Hong Kong for 2 years and worked in an International Kindergarten. Upon my return I furthered my education and studied a BA Hons in Early Years (work based) at Yew Trees Nursery. I thoroughly enjoyed this course as it gave me a better understanding of how children learn and develop. I have recently returned from maternity leave and I will be working back in the Toddler Room alongside Lucy in the Dragonfly group.

In my spare time I enjoy running, travelling and most of all spending time with my family.
