Meet The Team...



Nicola Hare BA Hons Early Childhood Studies 

Hello, I’m Nic and I live in Axminster with my partner and son's Dylan and Cody. I have extensive experience in childcare, having worked in this field since 2004. I grew up in Lyme Regis then moved to Exeter where I was inspired to begin my work in childcare. I loved the challenges and rewards, and soon escalated my way up to the role of Manager and completed my degree. I have been at All Saints Wise Owls since January 2018. In my spare time I enjoy spending quality time with friends and family, reading and the odd bit of sewing.
