They help settings to deliver the best possible early education and care to our youngest children. A national charity representing private, voluntary and independent (PVI) children’s nurseries across the UK. NDNA are the voice of the 24,000-strong nursery sector, an integral part of the lives of more than a million young children and their families.
Supported by the Board of Trustees, Purnima leads the strategic direction of NDNA. She has developed NDNA into the Voice of the Sector, the strongest and biggest representative organisation for early years across the UK. Purnima represents the sector to Government Ministers, parliamentarians, civil servants and local authorities.
Purnima regularly appears on national television, radio, online and print media sharing the views of our nursery members, raising public awareness and lobbying Government for the support nurseries need to deliver high-quality care and education for their children.
In 2010 Purnima was awarded OBE for services to families.
As part of our Empowering Early Years Education webinar, Purnima will be sharing her insights on the challenges prominent across the early years sector and what interventions and support are needed to ultimately redefine the future for our children.
