The newly-appointed nursery manager of a brand new childcare facility in Haverhill has spoken of her excitement about the new role. 

Unity Stars will open in June and will be headed by Karen Thompson, who has 17 years experience in early years provision.

While the building is on the grounds of Coupals Primary Academy, the nursery will be open to all families from Haverhill and surrounding areas.

Karen said: “We want to build something the whole town can be proud of.

“I have always been hugely passionate about childcare and the opportunity to make a difference to the lives of young children. 

“I am excited about the challenge of starting a nursery from scratch and offering the best possible childcare.

“Haverhill remains a growing town and I think more childcare provision is great news for the whole community.”

Karen was formerly manager of Linton Granta Preschool, which achieved an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted grade and deputy manager of Castle Fields Preschool in Haverhill. 

Having lived in the town for more than 20 years, Karen has also been a parent governor, a Haverhill Show committee member and a volunteer for Reach.

The nursery will be run by Unity Education, an arm of Unity Schools Partnership. 

Unity Stars will offer provision for children aged 0-3 years, between 7.30am to 6pm, 51 weeks of the year.
