Hi there. I am the owner of Mucky Pups Childcare. I have 2 children of my own and have been working with children of all ages for over 20 years in all areas of childcare. In 2013 I set up Mucky Pups Childcare from my own home as a childminding business and within 6 months I had grown to bursting point and decided to move the business to a separate building to open as a Nursery, but I wanted to keep it running in the same way that a childminding setting would operate. I am qualified to Level 3 in childcare and Level 4 in management. In my spare time I love spending the weekends walking the dog with my family.
Hello, my name is Theresa. I am the Nursery Manager. I have been working in childcare for 10 years. I gained my Level 5 in Early Years in 2013 and have just started an NVQ Level 5 qualification in Management. I am always looking to learn more and keep up to date with changes within the childcare sector so I can support my staff team. I am a passionate practitioner always striving to ensure myself and the staff are providing the children with quality opportunities and care when they are at nursery.
Hi, I am the Deputy Manager at Mucky Pups. I started working with Emma in January 2014 and started my Level 2 in childcare. I am now qualified to Level 3. You will usually see me in the Under 2’s room and I am also the Nursery’s Safeguarding and SENCO Officer. In my spare time I am a face painter at children’s parties.
Hello, I am Abi, the new Deputy Manager and SENCO. I qualified in Level 3 Children’s Care, Learning and Development in 2014 and I have been working in childcare since then. I am looking into doing my Level 5 Leadership/Management course to better myself and help the setting more. My job compares to no other when I see the children I care for achieve, develop and grow. I am looking forward to my time at Mucky Pups.
Hello. I am Senior Nursery Practitioner and work with the over-2s. I started working with Emma three years ago when she started her childminding business from home. I have completed Level 2 and Level 3 at Mucky Pups. I enjoy seeing the children every day and seeing them develop in personality, ability and in confidence.
My name is Janine and I have just qualified as a Level 2 Nursery Practitioner. I love working with the children and I am looking forward to completing my NVQ Level 3 in the future. I have 2 girls of my own and I love spending my spare time with them when I am not at work.

Hi, my name is Kelsey and I have been at Mucky Pups for 18 months now! I worked in the Baby Room for one year whilst doing my Level 2 apprenticeship and now I work as a Nursery Assistant in the Pre-School Room with the 2s-5s.
