Our New Deputy Manager!

We are delighted to announce that Sarah Dungey has joined us for the start of the new term as our new deputy manager with a view to becoming the manager while Toni s off on her upcoming maternity leave.


Sarah joins us from an Outstanding rated nursery nearby where she was a key member of the management team taking a direct lead in all aspects of staff development and training and nursery development and improvement. Looking for that next step in her career Sarah says she was attracted to Once Upon a Time by our reputation for being a lovely place to work and for having such strong links with our children and families, something we are incredibly proud of and very lucky to have.


The deputy role is a key link between the manager and the staff and one that has been performed wonderfully by Sarah's predecessor for years so we wanted to ensure we made a top quality appointment to replace her. Sarah is a graduate of Bath University specialising in Early Childhood Studies and brings a wealth of experience with her. In a few months time when Toni, our current manager, goes on maternity leave, Sarah will step in to her shoes as her maternity cover and we know that the nursery is in safe hands with her at the helm!


Sarah has brought her young son along with her so a warm welcome to him also! 


We are delighted to have you on board Sarah and we welcome you to our team!
