My name is Nancy Arkhurst and I have worked at Sparkles for a number of years. Both my children attended Sparkles, and we have many fond memories of this pre-school. I liked it so much, I ended up working here!

I enjoy working with children and have been able to transfer my skills from my previous role as an Occupational Therapist to a pre-school environment.  I love watching the children learn and flourish through play and I take every opportunity to laugh and be silly with them. As a member of the Sparkles team, we provide a nurturing and stimulating environment that sets the children up for their journey of life-long learning.  I am currently studying to complete my Level 3 Early Years Workforce qualification.
