The Team

Management

Lisa Broomfield, Centre Manager

I founded the nursery in 2007 and am very proud of how it has developed. I have been working with children for over twenty years and have worked previously as a teaching assistant and a NVQ assessor but my real love is preschool. I am happily married with three children and enjoy spending time with my family, listening to music, watching rugby and walking the dogs.

In my spare time I enjoy outdoor activities such as Go Ape and walking. I also attend Zumba sessions each week and like the odd karaoke sessions with friends. I am currently on my final year of my Foundation Degree.
