Our Team

Joined: 2021

Hello I’m Niyusha and I am the Nursery Manager here at Head Start, Crews Hill.

I joined Head Start Day Nursery as the nursery manager in April 2021 with my many years of experience managing nurseries which began in 2016 having previously managed another successful childcare setting.

I have been in childcare since 2006; providing quality care and education for children is what I strive for.

I hold a Level 5 qualification in children’s learning and development, and I am also currently studying towards a qualification in Operational Management. I have a very hands-on approach in my role and work extremely closely with my team to ensure the highest standards of quality and education for all children in our care.

Hello, I’m Lucy!
I am the Deputy Manager at Head Start Day Nursery & Pre School, Crews Hill.
I joined the Nursery in February 2023 as the Deputy Manager and Mental Health Champion. I use my knowledge to not only support my fellow colleagues, but also the children and their families.
I have over 8 years childcare experience and have worked through every stage of a setting; starting as an Apprentice and working my way up to a Room Leader and Deputy Manager. I believe this gives me a unique insight as to how to best support the children and my team throughout our different rooms.
Our aim is to provide a home-from-home experience to allow our children the opportunities to explore, learn and thrive!
