Meet our nursery manager, Ute Oliver

I have been working in childcare for 40 years, 33 of those I have been here at Leeming.

I started my career in childcare as a volunteer Mum, and progressed on as an early year’s assistant. From there I become a Room Lead and then the Deputy Manager and Manager shortly after. I have gained many early years qualification, as well as First Aid safeguarding children, working with children with additional needs and working with Parents in Partnership.

Childcare has been a life long passion for me, in particular working with children and families in the Armed Forces, especially working with children with additional needs and vulnerable children.

I have a military background myself, three children and two grandchildren. This has given me a sound understanding of what our children and parent’s needs are.
