About our Team
Nursery Manager: Mrs Vicky Rhodes
Hello, my name is Vicky, and I have been working in childcare for 20 years. I studied Educare for two years, after completing high school in Cape Town, South Africa. I moved to the UK in 2004 and after transferring my qualifications to an NVQ4 in Childcare, I started working in Northwest London as a Nursery Nurse. I have had experience in working and leading all age groups within the Early Years as well as experience within a mainstream Reception classroom. I have been trained in various methods of educational approach, such as - The Solihull Approach, Grassroots, and the Feuerstein method. I have a passion for swimming and have also attained a Baby and Toddler Teacher swimming qualification from the STA.
I have worked my way up through the ranks and gone on to manage two nurseries within the Camden borough of London. After getting married in 2017 I moved out of London and was delighted to be appointed Manager of Tenderlinks Godalming. This was a new challenge as it would mean putting my passion for early years education into a start-up setting. I am so proud to say that I have had the pleasure of watching our setting flourish and grow within the Surrey community, in just over three years. We are now well known for our family centred approach, promoting an outdoor learning experience, and doing our utmost to be a home away from home for the children in our care.
In May 2021, I was then also given responsibility to manage Tenderlinks Elstead which is a new nursery.
