Our Staff

Nicola Hills

Senior Manager and Designated Child Protection Lead Practitioner

Works full time running and managing the pre-school, after school club and holiday club. I have a foundation degree and moved to the pre-school when it opened in 2012 after working at Towers Tiny Tots day nursery as the deputy manager since 2006. I have always wanted to work with children and the way in which early years education supports lifelong learning is the reason I will always have a passion for childcare.
