Meet the team

BALLY KALIRAI (Currently on Maternity Leave)
Nursery Manager at Flutterbies


My name is Bally and I have recently started a new chapter in my career joining Tommies Childcare as Nursery Manager here at Flutterbies Day Nursery.

Growing up, I have always felt passionate about working with children, watching them grow whilst gaining their idenity and personality. My passion and determination to offer the best in the Early Years are what guided me through different roles in this vibrant sector.

My previous experiences and education have given me vast experience and knowledge, which I am excited to share with the staff team to help support their ongoing development. Me and the team are here to ensure all children within our care are provided with the best possible learning opportunities.

I believe that forming strong relationships with all families is key to delivering quality childcare, which is why I am excited to have joined Flutterbies and be a part of an exciting journey.

I very much look forward to welcoming you to our amazing nursery. Why not arrange a visit today to learn more?

Deputy Manager at Flutterbies


My name is Lesley and I am the Deputy Manager here at Flutterbies Day Nursery in Coventry.

I joined the team here at Flutterbies back in November 2021, originally as the nursery’s Third in Charge but stepped up to the Deputy Manager role in February 2022.

My childcare journey started back as an apprentice, where I worked alongside studying towards my Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications in Childcare. I have a huge passion for early childhood learning and have been proud to be working in this sector for more than 20 years. Helping children to learn and grow is an incredibly important role, and I feel lucky that I get to spend my time with so many incredible children.

We’d really love for your family to join us, so why not make an appointment with us today? We’d love to tell you more about Flutterbies.

Rest of the Team at Flutterbies

Flutterbies is supported by a team of 12 Nursery Practitioners who are all passionate about working with children in the early years sector. All staff have Paediatric First Aid Training and receive regular and ongoing training through a variety of internal and external professional development opportunities.

Our commitment guarantees that our employees are the best of the best, recruiting those who have a desire to make a difference to children and are passionate about the early years as a career choice.

In the 2017 Ofsted inspection report it was noted that, “Relationships between staff and children are strong. Staff promote children’s self-esteem through acknowledging and praising positive behaviour. Children behave well and play cooperatively.”

This is supported by a consistent and familiar staff team who have length of service on their side including Nicci Porter who has been part of our Tommies family since 2002. Nicci leads the Pre-school Room and has been instrumental in so many children’s lives during her time with Tommies.

Nursery Manager, Angela Brady, received the Tommies Childcare ‘Outstanding Contribution’ Award at our 2019 company awards ceremony, for her passion and commitment to the nursey and the company as a whole.

The rest of the team at Flutterbies have won several company awards over the years:

  • Innovative Environments Award (2019): Garden Area
  • Newcomer of the Year (2019): Dawn-Bradley Jones
  • Outstanding Contribution Award (2019): Angela Brady
  • Deputy Manager of the Year (2018): Angela Brady
  • Innovative Environments Award (2018): Pre-school Room
  • Newcomer of the Year (2018): Kayleigh Ballard)

Based at the setting is our cook Dawn Bradley-Jones who cooks all of the nursery meals on site. Dawn is extremely committed to working with parents and will personally meet with those parents of children who may have certain allergies or requirements. This helps ease parents, where they may have been anxious about the nurseries ability to cater for their child’s dietary requirements.

There is no doubt that in choosing Flutterbies for your child you will be supported and advised by a friendly and knowledgeable staff team, who genuinely care about the children in their care.
