This week’s Humans of Weston instalment comes from Weston-super-Mare nursery manager Karen Keen.

Karen is the manger of the Around 3 day nursery, in Monkton Avenue on the Oldmixon estate.

Karen grew up in Pill and later moved to Burnham, and has previously worked as an administrator at Weston General Hospital and a nursery manager in Wells.

She decided to return to childcare as she missed working with children and began working at Around 3 last year.

She said: “Every day is different – you just don’t know what the children will come out with. You could be having the worst day and you come here and they put a smile on your face.

“We are due an Ofsted inspection very shortly. I have only been here for three months but I have worked really hard turning the nursery around.

“Our new member of staff, Rosie, has also done a fantastic job as well as everyone else on the team.”
