Megan Kent

Early Years Manager

Megan has a Level 3 CACHE Diploma in Childcare and Education, as well as 7 years experience working with children from birth to 5 years. She is currently completing a degree in Early Years at the Sheffield Hallam University.

Her favourite activity to do with the children is anything that involves open-ended materials and loose parts because of the imagination and creativeness that these kinds of resources spark. Her favourite part about her job is making a difference in a child’s life, watching the children achieve something and that no matter how you are feeling the children will always put a smile on your face.

In her spare time Megan enjoys looking after her indoor plants, shopping and going for walks. Her superhero name would be Super Flash because she loves cleaning and thinks it would be amazing to be able to clean away the bad guys!

Her favourite place in the world is at home, where her cat socks is! It comes as no surprise that Megan would love to be a black fluffy cat with big green eyes if she could be an animal for a day.

Becky says that her best quality is being positive and if she could be an animal she would be a sloth as they live a very calm and chilled life most of the time but can be fierce if necessary. She says the craziest thing she has ever done is jumped off a boat into the sea while being on holiday in Turkey, certainly something that takes a lot of courage!
