Early Years – Little Hooters


350-85A54C444FI have been a Nursery Nurse for 30 years, originally training at Norland , Nursery Training College in Hungerford.  Since qualifying I have had a variety of jobs with young children including being a nanny and working at the nursery at the Old Newbury College.   I’ve been at The Willows for nearly 6 years and have had lots of opportunities including gaining an NVQ level 3 in Speech, Language and Communication Development.   I lead ‘The Every Child a Talker’ initiative at The Willows and organise ‘The Rhyme Challenge’ every year.  In the last year I have led Little Hooters, and have loved being involved  in the new project of developing our pre- school nursery.
