Manager – Haydi Piha

NVQ Level 3 in Childcare Learning & Development

I have been associated with Little Bicks nursery for 8 years now. I still remember my phone conversation with Rivka Bick as I asked her if my son, who is now 10 years old, could attend the nursery. It was the warmth and friendly attitude I received then that made me realise that Little Bicks was the right place for my children. All three of them had a wonderful experience attending the nursery.

I jumped at the opportunity to work in the setting after working as a therapist with children with additional needs for over 15 years. I took on a maternity cover position after moving into mainstream teaching. I thoroughly enjoyed being the Rising 4s teacher at Little Bicks. I used my knowledge from years of experience to help prepare the children for transition into school.

I was thrilled to then take on the position of Deputy Manager a year ago. I was able to take on more responsibility as well as be part of the children's learning experience. It has been a natural progression and privilege to now become manager at Little Bicks. I am able to bring together my knowledge and experience working with children of all ages as well as my ability to lead and support a fabulous team of staff to provide the best care for the children in an inclusive, nurturing  and educational environment. I look forward to my future at Little Bicks!
