Our Team

Lisa Lowden: Nursery Owner/Manager/Key Person

Following a 14 year period as a nanny for a family in Southwest London, I joined a nursery school in 2006.  I became Manager after achieving a Diploma in Pre-School Practice (CACHE Level 3), and completing numerous courses as part of my own continuous Personal Development.


In 2008 I opened Sunshine Nursery at Kitson Hall, Barnes initially as an afternoon session nursery.  I then had the opportunity to move the nursery to our current premises in April 2013.  


I love working with children and enjoy the challenge of helping them to achieve their milestones and watching them grow and achieve in all they do.


My interests include reading, travel and jogging.


I have a Level 3 Diploma in Early Years.  Before joining Sunshine Nursery I taught at a Montessori pre-school.  I enjoy guiding and supporting children, and helping them reach their full potential in a fun learning environment that encourages them to express their thoughts and views.  


I am happy, enthusiastic and have a playful personality.
