Senior Manager

Early Years Professional Status

Kristina is our Senior Nursery Manager, managing Mon Ami Alford but also overseeing all three of our settings. She will certainly be a familiar face to many of you!
Kristina has been with Mon Ami since our establishment in 2002, coordinating and supporting all the settings, ensuring they are functioning to the highest standards possible and, ultimately, ensuring that children have access to the best possible opportunities for learning, development and growth.
Kristina comes from a nursing background and holds a Bachelor of Nursing (Hons) degree with a children's nursing specialisation. She holds Early Years Professional Status and is Mon Ami’s senior SENCo and Safeguarding Lead, supporting all other SENCos across our nurseries.
Over the years, Kristina has picked up numerous awards including being Highly Commended in the Early Years Professional Award at the Nursery World Awards and winning Operations/Regional Manager of the Year at the NMT National Nursery Awards.
Kristina is hugely dedicated to Mon Ami and goes over and above to ensure exceptional outcomes for all the children across our nurseries.

I think it's safe to say that I've been a part of Mon Ami in some way, shape or form for as long as I can remember! As a child, I attended Mon Ami Swineshead and was looked after by many of the same faces I see and work alongside today.

I returned to Mon Ami to work in administration alongside my university studies. After graduating, I took on a more full-time role and am now increasingly involved in all aspects of Mon Ami. I am currently undertaking a Level 3 Early Years Educator qualification to support this, as well as extensive supplemental training. 

Being able to watch the nursery I grew up in evolving, expanding and continuously improving over the years has been really special for me. Mon Ami has given me so many happy memories and to now be a part of that myself is a privilege.
