Gail Keverne's Bio

Owner/Nursery School Manager/Deputy Designated Safeguarding lead.

I decided to open Catkins in 1988 when my youngest daughter was 3. I am a qualified Nursery school teacher with 45 years’ experience, I first taught in a state nursery in London before moving back to the west country where I ran a play group in our local village, plus other nurseries including a home based setting. I felt by opening my own setting I could give children the security of learning in a home environment yet provide a high level of education with different learning experiences, I never thought that I would still be open all these years later and looking after the children of the children that attended Catkins when I first opened- including my own Granddaughters.
