Meet the Team

Leadership

Carla Nichols - Centre Manager

I have been manager of the Children’s Centre since 2009 and am responsible for the day to day running of the Centre and Ducketts Preschool; working closely with the staff team to coordinate the services on offer. I am responsible for supervising and managing the staff team. I have worked within the Early Years sector since 1997, my previous roles include, Nursery Nurse, Teaching Assistant and Extended Schools Coordinator. I am passionate about supporting children and their families and ensuring that all families have access to support and services. I am the deputy designated person for safeguarding. I work in partnership with other services e.g. Early Years, Health, Education and Family support organisations to enable families to receive support for children aged 0-5years. If you have any feedback or ideas about the services on offer at the Centre please do get in touch. I look forward to meeting you and your family soon..
