Stacey has worked for Fennies since 2011 and was a nursery manager prior to this – she has been working in childcare for over 19 years. She is truly at the heart of the local community and is an admired and respected manager. Stacey has strong relationships with the families and children at Addiscombe Road where she has created a caring family environment where children thrive.
She is a role model and supportive leader, encouraging her team to grow and develop into future Fennies’ room leaders, deputies and managers.
She constantly strives to go above and beyond in making sure that all the children in her care learn and develop in an enabling environment and become confident school-ready children.
In this podcast Stacey shares her passion for leading a large setting in Addiscombe, Croydon. She discusses how she has a hands-on approach to leadership and can often be seen working in the rooms with the children and team. Stacey reflects on Fennies’ involvement with Dr. Jools Page’s research on professional love. She also sensitively discusses how her leadership skills were used in the aftermath of the Croydon tram crash and how the whole staff team selflessly supported the emergency services.
