My favourite children's book is The Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.
With 36 years childcare experience, I have worked as Deputy Manager at both of my previous settings and had 2 years nannying experience between the two.
As well as my enjoyment, experience & enthusiasm for working with children, I am also a mother to four children and now a grandmother to 2! I believe learning should be fun & every child brings something new to our setting & even after all these years, they never fail to amaze me .
My favourite children's book is Five Minutes Peace by Jill Murphy.
I qualified in 2000 with an NNEB and started my career as a TA at a primary school. I then worked at a Nursery in Welwyn for 16 years before joining St Michaels Preschool in 2023. I really enjoy crafting with the children and watching them play and explore the outdoors. It's wonderful watching them grow and develop throughout their time at Pre-school. I have three grown up children and enjoy spending my free time with them and my nine grandchildren.
Early Years Practitioner
My favourite children's book is Superworm by Julia Donaldson.
I have an NNEB diploma in childcare & a HNC in childhood studies. I worked as a nanny for 5 years & as a community nursery nurse for 9 years. I believe very strongly in children learning through play. I feel that it is important to encourage children to become independent learners, whilst being there to support & encourage them, building their confidence & sense of worth. I live in Woolmer Green with my husband & two children. I love spending time with my family & keeping active.
Early Years Practitioner
My favourite children's book is Simon Sock by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet.
I have over 25 years experience in early years & nannying.
My personal passion in the early years setting is working with arts & crafts to inspire & develop children with their creative mindset.
I enjoy spending time with my two school age children & I'm often busy running
them around to extracurricular activities. We also love cycling and walking together.. I enjoy running & staying active in my spare time..
Early Years Apprentice
My favourite children's book is Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae.
I am an Early Years Apprentice, currently retraining after a career break. I was previously a researcher at a business organisation in Westminster. I started working at St Michael's Preschool in 2023 & I love seeing children's natural curiosity & seeing their perseverance pay off to develop new skills.
I live locally with my family & enjoy spending my free time with family
& friends, gardening & being outdoors.
My favourite children's book is We're Going on A Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen.
I have been working at St Michael's since 2019 & deal with admissions, funding & all other administration. I have over 15 years experience working in administration & healthcare recruitment. My daughter attended the Pre-school & both of my children are now at St Michael's Primary. Being able to work locally, seeing familiar, friendly faces from the community & watching little ones joining the Pre-school & then move on to 'big school' is a privilege!
