About Hazel

I am an award winning professional within early years education.

I manage a sector leading establishment with outstanding Care Inspectorate grades.

Since being employed within Big Nird Nursery I have expanded the company, developed training programmes, strategic management processes and created new leadership posts in order to support our thriving and passionate team.

I have used my skills and knowledge to support colleagues, children and families.

I have sat on the judging panel for Nursery Management Awards. I have also represented my local authority on Scottish Policy Committee meetings within national organisations.

My skills and knowledge have been gained from the years that I have worked within care and education. I have taken on roles from nanny, childcare practitioner to management of early years settings.

My role as a mother also allows me to apply an empathetic and understanding approach to all of my service users that is genuine and from the heart.
