Kim  – Nursery Director

Hi, I am one of the Directors of Cracker Jacks who works within the nursery. I am Level 2 qualified in childcare and have previously been a keyworker, but as the company has grown I have had to concentrate more on the administrative duties but still work very closely with our team.

We have built the nursery from scratch and are extremely pleased with how it has grown. To have been able to be a part of so many children’s learning journeys has been a pleasure for us all. My own children still attend the nursery, out of school club and holiday club and they love every minute of it as they do so many exciting things and have made so many friends.

Gemma - Manager

My name is Gemma and, I am the Nursery Manager. I started working at Cracker Jacks Day Nursery in January 2017 in the baby room as a level three practitioner. I still work in the baby room where I enjoy setting out many sensory activities for the babies to enjoy, and planning different activities and creative ideas to try. I am currently working towards my level five in childcare.

I am originally from Peterborough, although I moved to this area over ten years ago to be closer to other family members. In my spare time, I am a very out-going person and enjoy day trips out, like eating out at restaurants and clothes shopping.

Before joining Cracker Jacks team, I use to be nanny for a family with two children, where I enjoyed taking the children on day trips out, attending baby groups and involving the children in cooking.

I am also the Child Protection Officer and SENCO Officer so please speak to me if I can be of any help.

I have two young daughters who like to keep me busy with crafts, outings a playdates.
