Our Team

Sam Burns

Joined: 2012

Hello, my name is Sam. I am the Nursery Manager at Woodlands Day Care.

Joining the nursery in January 2012, I began my early years journey gaining experience with all ages before developing a passion for preschool and supporting their readiness towards school.

My continued enthusiasm to learn lead me to complete my Level 2 and Level 3 which then sparked a further interest towards completing a degree in Early Years.

I was promoted to management in 2014. Whilst continuing my studies and with a desire to help others, I focused on building the curriculum and supporting my team and parents, to help ensure all children to flourish and be curious learners.
