Prior to Noahs Ark I spent 10 years in retail management. My first experience of Noah’s Ark was when my daughter attended over 12 years ago, and I loved it so much I decided I wanted to get more involved! During the first 5 years I worked as an assistant where I gained my NVQ Early Years qualification, then deputy for 2 years and manager for 4 years under a consistently Outstanding (Ofsted graded) setting and now joint owner! I love the rewards my work brings, working with the children, seeing them develop, learn and grow. I also enjoy managing our wonderful, dedicated team of staff who have collectively been working with us for over 45 years!

Hi, I am Tracey and I live in Harpenden, am married and have a son now at senior school. I qualified as an NNEB nursery nurse in 1995 and have worked in a variety of settings such as day nurseries and children's centres. I have been working for Noah's ark for the last 8 years. Working with children is very rewarding and every day is different! I enjoy seeing the children develop and become more confident.

I have always loved working in childcare , first as a nanny and now at Noah’s Ark. It’s such a rewarding job watching the children develop , learn and grow. It's an honour and a privilege to have a small part in that process.

I started working at Noah's Ark ten years ago and worked for my NVQ Level 3 in Children's Care Learning and Development. This built upon my experience in bringing up four sons and also being a Sunday School teacher at Crabtree Church. I enjoy working with young children and seeing them grow and develop.

I qualified as a Radiographer, specialising in cancer treatment, in 1997 at The Cookridge Hospital in Leeds, then I worked at The Royal Marsden Hospital in London until I had our 2 children. When the youngest of our daughters left Noah's Ark, I realised how much I would miss the warm, friendly atmosphere and fantastic staff, so I started working here in 2012! I gained my CACHE Level 3 qualification in 2014 and became Deputy Manager in 2015. I am now extremely proud and excited to be co-owner and manager. I find working with children to be hugely rewarding, diverse and challenging. I enjoy helping them to grow in confidence and independence and to learn and develop in a fun and friendly environment. The bonds we form with children and their families are vital at this early stage and last a lifetime. The team, children, families and staff I work with on a daily basis make my job the best in the world.

Hi, I’m Tamsin! I have a foundation degree in children and family studies and have worked with children for 8 years! I came to Noah’s Ark in March 2018 after becoming a mum and wanting to explore the word of early years. I enjoy everything about working in a pre school from reading a peppa pig book to helping a child to learn their alphabet! I look forward to meeting you soon!

My son attended Noah’s Ark and I sometimes went in as a parent helper. I loved the warm, friendly atmosphere so when he moved on I volunteered a couple of times a week. When a vacancy appeared I was happy to be considered for the post. Coming from a large family, I have always enjoyed being around children. I enjoy seeing their joy when they accomplish something by themselves for the first time and their delight when they discover something new. People say being with youngsters keeps you young - I’m not sure about that, but their sense of fun and laughter is infectious and when the children have a good day, so do I.
