Our experience

Kate Peach – Managing Director

Starting as a Nanny in New York in 1991, Kate quickly learnt that she was born for childcare, leaping straight into her role at ‘Early Years Childcare’ (the leading chain back in the day) where she would thrive in various roles for the next 20 years, from Practitioner to Team Leader, to Deputy, to Nursery Manager and then on to their head office as Training Manager and Quality and Development Director! Until 2009 when she achieved Managing Director!… Phew, that’s a lot of climbing!

Starting off the second leg of her career Kate set up her consultancy company Peacharno, supporting and developing other childcare establishments.

This has taken her to over 100 different settings and has elevated Kate to become a known figure in the childcare industry, famous for working tirelessly to promote practices that ensure children’s health and well-being are at the centre of childcare.

Kate has two children and has witnessed as a parent first-hand the benefits of expert quality care, Creating Each Peach Childcare is a dream come true, allowing her to instil her strong beliefs for child-focused care and her passion for excellence and customer focus.

Kate is living her dream and is inspiring others to pursue their own.
