Caring Staff who Build Partnerships with Parents

We are proud of our happy, professional team, all of whom have been chosen for their ability and commitment to care for and nurture young children. Most are also active members of the communities we serve. Each child is allocated a key person who becomes their primary carer and with whom they, and their family, will build a secure relationship.




I have worked in childcare for almost 20 years and have been at Harvey Bears since 2011. In 2015, I had the pleasure of taking on the role of Manager. I have a fantastic, supportive and extremely dedicated team who all adore caring for your children. I am level 5 qualified and I am a special educational needs coordinator. In my spare time I like to cross-stitch and embroider.


Deputy Manager

I am a qualified teacher, and toddler room supervisor at Harvey Bears. I live in Badsey and have worked in Harvington since 2012. I enjoy children to be messy, including gloop, jelly and even baked beans! In my spare time I enjoy gardening, knitting and spending time with a growing family. I am often found in National Trust properties roaming the house and grounds with envy!


Pre-School Assistant

Hi I'm Kelly and I live in Pershore. I have been working with preschool children for nearly 6 years now. I believe in this time I have gained vast experience and absolutely love to see the children in my care thrive and grow. Working with children is hard work but super rewarding at the same time and I'm looking forward to helping your children to grow and learn.


Pre-School Assistant

I have worked in childcare since 1993 and I absolutely love my job. I have a level 2 qualification in childcare. I have 2 children of my own and 1 grandson. I believe I have the skills to handle every child's needs in a range of situations. By being caring, patient, imaginative and consistent, I feel families will be comfortable leaving their precious children in my care to be nurtured and educated. I am delighted to say that I'm now seeing the second generation of children coming through our doors.

Hi, I am Hannah and I’m pleased to have been working with your children at Harvey Bears since November 2020. I have lived in the village for two years having moved from the west coast of Wales. I have previously worked as a primary school teacher. I have a little boy who’s  two years old so I feel very much in their world. In my spare time I enjoy growing veggies, keeping chickens and cooking.

Pre-School Assistant

I’ve been working at Harvey Bears since November 2017 after deciding to change my career and do what I always wanted to do and work with children. After completing my Level 2 Childcare apprenticeship at the setting, I was thrilled to get a permanent job and continue to spend my days looking after the children. My favourite thing about this job is seeing the children develop and grow. Outside of work, I enjoy reading and am a member of the National Trust. I can often be found wandering round one of their properties with my family and friends.
