Antonia Ogden-Meade has worked in Quality and Performance for over 20 years. She started her career in the NHS as a Nurse and worked in Children's health services for a number of years before going into performance and operational management. Having been an Executive Director of Performance and Operations for 4 years, Antonia left the NHS to set up her own Nursery in 2006 and has since expanded her successful business to 7 settings (3 of which are 'Outstanding' nurseries, the newest achieving a 'Good' at its registration inspection). Antonia is also a Ofsted Inspector so her level of expectancy within the group is very high and she has a programmed of continious auditing to ensure that the level and quality of care is maintained and improved upon. Antonia is very much present in all the nurseries and visits on site on a weekly basis working closely with the manager.
