My name is Becky Styles and I am the Nursery Manager for New Beginnings.
I completed my NVQ Level 3 in Early Years and my Foundation Degree at The
Berkshire College of Agriculture and moved on to The University of Reading where I completed my BA hons degree and achieved my Early Years Professional Status.
I have had the opportunity to enjoy various childcare roles which have provided me with a great understanding, knowledge and experience in my fields. For me, one of the most rewarding parts of my job is seeing the children flourish, grow in confidence and seeing them develop their own personalities. I work closely with the team to continue meeting children’s needs along with promoting learning and tracking each individual child’s development.
I look forward to welcoming you and your family to our nursery very soon.
