There are not many people I know today who love their job as much as I do. Caring for and educating the next generation is the most rewarding career I can think of and everyday brings new challenges and new developments. Children today are curious and vivacious little people and engaging them keeps you young and keeps you smiling. I endeavour to provide the most stimulating environment I can for the children and the staff, so that every child has the best start in life. I hope I will always be lucky enough to be surrounded by the best generation there is. - Tasneem Ramji – Owner/Manager

BABY ROOM

I joined 9 Months as a CCE student in 2001. I have worked with many experienced and qualified staff, from whom I have gained knowledge, confidence and a better understanding of the professional child care environment. After completing my CCE, I started work at 9 Months as a nursery assistant. As a nursery assistant I worked hard to maintain the rules and using my own initiative I upheld the high standards of the nursery. After 6 years working at 9 Months, I have progressed to Team Leader and Head of the baby room. I am a kind and gentle person, who is caring and affectionate towards children, staff and parents alike. I try to establish a better working environment for everyone to create positive relationships. I have undertaken several courses, which enabled me to refresh my knowledge and allow me to work efficiently with the babies and create a loving atmosphere. I have brought up three of my own children which started me on my path of childcare & education. I have just completed my NVQ III which I found stimulating and incredibly motivating. - Sumera Sukhera – Team Leader & Head of Baby Unit
I have recently moved to 9MN after successfully running my own child minding business. It has been a very smooth transition as it really does feel like a home from home for both staff and the children. There is a wonderful friendly atmosphere at 9MN and I feel humbled to be a part of the team. With 26 years of experience caring for children, I knew 9MN would be the perfect place for me to work. - Neena Bhangu - Early Years Practitioner and Safeguarding Officer
I always knew I wanted to work in the Early Years profession and enjoyed looking after my young cousins since I was a child. I completed my NVQ III as soon as I had the chance and am loving working in the baby room at 9MN. I hope to continue in my career and work towards room leader in the future. I love spending my spare time looking after the family dog. - Becky Gilbert - Early Years Practitioner

TODDLER ROOM

Initially undertaking my NVQ 3 whilst working at 9months for 3 years, I took a year’s break to become an NVQ Assessor. I returned to 9 Months as Training coordinator and also trained to be the SENCO for the setting. With time, I have gained valuable experience and skills which have led me to the post of Deputy Manager. I still work in the toddler room and have my own key group as my work and bond with the children is my highest priority. Working with children is my forte and 9months is like my second home. - Neha Dabhi - Deputy Manager & Training Development Officer
I have almost completed my Level 3 in Childcare and Education. This will be my fifth year working at 9 Months Nursery.  I joined after a career change from hairdressing, as I wanted to work with children. It has been a rewarding experience, being part of a great team and looking after such lovely children. I work in the Older Toddler room and have my own key group. In my spare time I enjoy jogging, shopping and socialising with friends & family. - Joana Pinto - Early Years Practitioner
I have been working with children for the past 4 years, mainly in India. I am a graduate in business and maths and have also studied German. I came to the UK in 2015 where I worked and gained experience in several nurseries before coming to 9 Months. When I visited 9 Months I felt so positive. This is the nursery where I have learned so much about children and I am still on that learning curve. I have just completed my level 2 and will be going on to undertake my level 3. I currently work in the Baby room and have recently been given my own key group. I enjoy working with the babies and enjoy helping them during their development for their better future.  I am currently on Maternity Leave and am looking forward to returning in September. - Sonam Talwar – Early Years Practitioner
