I have an honours degree in children and young people as well as various training which includes paediatric first aid, safeguarding children, behaviour management, food hygiene and much more!
I am the nursery’s designated safeguarding officer, first aider, behaviour management coordinator and senco :-)

Nursery Nurse

Hello, my name is Louise, I am qualified to level 3 in childcare which I received in 2011. I decided to take time out and travelled the world for three years and then returned straight back into childcare! I spent a little while working in a private day nursery with ages 0-5 before taking time out to have my son and enjoy time with him before returning to childcare now that he is a little older. I am so excited to be back in a nursery as it is where my true passion lies! I love to see children grow and develop in such a short space of time. Throughout my career I have studied various courses and training including safeguarding, first aid and behaviour management.
