Our Staff

Meet the Manager


Jo Godbold – Owner/Manager


















Early Years Teacher Status, (EYTS, Level 7). BA Hons in Early Years. Experienced 'Special educational needs co-ordinator' SENCO.




I have worked in childcare for over 10 years, starting in private day nursery, working with children aged 3mths -5yrs. I then made the transition to senior practitioner in a pre-school with children aged 2-5yrs

Finally, further experience was gained in reception with children aged 4-5yrs.

Having worked in these various settings I have been allowed to see the flow of transitions that children encounter on their learning journey, from starting on their first day to leaving pre-school, and moving to reception. I have gained vital expereince in the Early Years sector and gained a hollistic view of each childs learning journey. This experience will be reflected throughout the pre-school's ethos, delivering high quality practice and outcomes for the children in our care.




I grew up in West Wickham and attended Hawes Down infants and primary school, and later Hayes secondary school. At Sunny Kids pre-school,  I feel I will be contributing to the community in which I myself grew and learned. This is a great opportunity to give something back.
