Mikki - Manager
Hi, I’m Mikki and I’ve been the Manager at Auden since 2005. In that time, we’ve grown from a 28 place nursery with low occupancy and 10 staff to a thriving, buzzing 50 place nursery with an average of 23 amazing permanent staff and a regular team of bank staff. It’s a fun place to work, therefore creating a fun place for the children. I have worked with children for over 20 years and still feel as if they teach me something new every day. I am NNEB qualified and in recent years have also achieved NVQ4 in Childcare, Learning and Development and NVQ5 in Management as well as my Leader Qualification in Forest School. In my spare time I like nothing more than to curl up on the sofa with a good book or TV show or to go out to dinner with friends.

Seeing the children develop from babies into young people, developing their own interest and personalities and listening to them whilst they play- their imaginations make me smile!” I am lucky enough to be in a position where I can inspire, support and provide training to driven and dedicated team members who share our vision.
