Meet Our Team

Kerry Whitehouse

Director

I have gained a wealth of experience in the childcare profession since 1999.  Over many years I have set up and developed pre-schools on behalf of organisations and my own Full Day Care and Out of School Care provision for children aged eight weeks up to twelve years and have achieved Outstanding and Good grades from Ofsted. I also run a very successful mobile crèche service which travels to various locations in the community.

 

In 2006 I was runner-up Sandwell Women of Achievement and received an award.  In 2007, 2009 and 2011 myself and the Business Manager received the Childcare Business Management Award for Tipton Toddlers from Sandwell Quality Early Years Unit. Further achievements include an accredited quality assurance scheme “Investors –in-Children” (2007–2010) and The Basic Skills Agency Award – Quality in Early Years 2013. I hold a BA Degree in Early Childhood Services.

 

I am also honoured to have been a trustee for a local charity Murray Hall Community Trust, since 2007. I strive to network with community partners and other childcare professionals to ensure that I am kept up-to-date about the childcare industry.

 

All of the above empowered me to strive for excellence in recruiting the right peopIe for the job, not just within my own Company but for everyone else who looks after young people too, hence the opening of Solutions 4 Educare Ltd.

 

None of this would be possible without my wonderful family and dedicated work colleagues.

I have worked within the Childcare industry for ten years and have experienced a range of different roles and environments throughout.

I hold a degree in Performing Arts as well as acquiring a Sports qualification.

 

I am able to incorporate all my knowledge and skills, previously gained, into my role as a Recruitment Consultant, enabling me to recruit the best possible candidates for my clients.

 

I have high expectations for my team and I love being a part of a 'Caring Community Company.' I have a passion and desire to ensure that children and young people thrive in stimulating environments.  I know how important it is to have a positive influence and attitude on a day to day basis when working with children.

 

Outside of work, I am a huge West Bromwich Albion fan and have a season ticket. I also have a family of my own, and enjoy spending lots of time with them out and about and in the garden. I also play guitar, enjoy live music and going to the gym.

Vicky Powell

Business Director

I have been working as a Childcare Business Manager since 2001 having also completed my degree in Business Management in 2010 . In finding my own Brand Essence I developed a mission statement: ‘To be challenged to provide opportunities that contribute to the well-being and achievement of others.’  This approach ultimately enables me to seek the best outcomes for children – I support staff in terms of work-life balance which maximizes the benefits for my clients in having the most motivated ready for work staff.

 

I have exceptional organisation skills from setting up office based systems for administration, finance, payroll and personnel to leading and managing a very busy business. A key achievement for me was developing a small voluntary group to a thriving full day care Nursery. This was recognised in 2007, 2009 and 2011 whereby myself and the Company Director received the Childcare Business Management Award for Tipton Toddlers from Sandwell Quality Early Years Unit.

 

These key achievements have facilitied my work with with Solutions 4 Educare.  I have a passion for HR and recuritment and have an excellent understanding of what your school, nursery or children’s centre requires when recruiting and selecting staff or needing emergency cover.

 

On a personal note I love taking holidays abroad with my family, taking in the culture and sightseeing and enjoy socialising with my family and friends.
