Meet The Team

Emily - Manager

Hi my name is Emily and I am the Manager at Newton Leys. I hold an NVQ Level 3 as well as a Level 5 in childcare management. 

I have been in childcare for 14 years starting as an apprentice then working in management for 6 years, 4 of which I was an area manager. 

I really enjoy supporting children with their development, watching them grow and becoming independent before they head off to school. 

When I am not working I am mum to my 2 year old son who also attends a Buttons setting. 

Katie - 

Hello, my name is Katie and I have a Level 3 diploma in childcare.

Since gaining my qualification 10 years ago, I have worked in a private day nursery caring for children between 6 months to 4 years.

I enjoy working with children because it’s a pleasure to see them grow and watch them develop their individual personalities.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my 2 children and husband going to the zoo and the farm.


Clare - Assistant Manager

Hi, my name is Clare and I am the Assistant Manager at Newton Leys.

I started my childcare career 23 years ago in a private day nursery after leaving college with a BTEC national diploma in early childhood studies. I was the deputy there for 20 years and have gained so much experience in childcare and management.

I look forward to a new challenge and meeting all the staff and children.

When I’m not at work I have a 17 and 13 year old who keep myself and my husband on our toes!

I love working with children and helping them to get the best start in life.
