Kelly Parker has worked in childcare for 12 years and has a foundation degree in Early Years, which has given her a fantastic combination of experience and education. Her leadership skills and style encourage the team to promote a creative environment to help every child to reach their full potential.
As a manager, Kelly feels it is important to spend as much time as she can with the children and her team. She is proactive, outgoing, confident and has great communication skills.
The visions and values that she has built up at Bellissima ensure that her team have a strong sense of belonging, they are passionate and care about what they are teaching the children. Kelly aims to teach lifelong skills for the future.
