Meet the team

It’s our brilliant team that makes LGF the great place it is…

We thought you might want to meet the people who spend most of their days with your little ones.

Adelie
Nursery Manager

B.A. Hons Advanced Study of Early Years with Qualified Teacher Status Early Years Professional Status

I am a mum of two boys, both of whom came to The Little Green Frog.

Before becoming a mum I worked as a nursery teacher and then as a teacher in a children’s centre.

I love watching children explore their environment and develop their own learning style. I believe that the role of the adult is integral to this and it is a privilege to play my part.

Being the manager at The Little Green Frog gives me chance to help practitioners develop their skills too, adults need many of the same things as the children do: space, nurturing, challenges and satisfaction – that’s how we like to work at The Little Green Frog!

Things I like outside of the nursery: Dancing, climbing and lego (with my boys!)

Ruth
Nursery Principal

Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Primary), Early Years Professional Status

I started babysitting and running children’s parties at 14 and have worked with children ever since, in holiday clubs,

nurseries and as a teacher in schools. This is what I have always wanted to do.

I opened the nursery in 2005 and in the beginning I ran the nursery with my husband and both of our children attended the nursery. But the children have graduated to school and my husband has his own business manufacturing and distributing U-NU, a creative construction toy that was invented for this nursery!

Now I spend time teaching the children, which is my favourite part of my work because it is a very creative and rewarding process. It’s a fantastic feeling to build a great relationship with a child and facilitate their learning. I am always learning from them!

I also spend time each week running the business which can be anything from meeting other nursery providers to altering our website or interviewing staff. I am lucky to have such a great team to work with.

The nursery day is extremely varied, very occasionally it can be exhausting but there is never a dull moment and I absolutely love it!

Things I like outside of the nursery: Dog walking, camping, playing the violin and singing

Oria
Nursery Manager

BA(Hons), Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Primary) with Qualified Teacher Status

I developed a passion for nurturing others and enthusiasm for sharing my love of learning when I was a child, 

volunteering to help younger children with their reading as well as babysitting.

For 13 years after graduating from university, I gained a multitude of skills working on various building projects including designing schools and nurseries, and it was here that my love of teaching was reignited.

For 9 years I taught in primary schools, where I specialised in teaching art, maths, phonics and languages. My belief is that each child (and adult) is unique and special and should be allowed to blossom in a stimulating environment, where they feel happy and loved.

Getting it right early on, allows us to nurture independent and confident children and I strive to help everyone acquire the skills they need to thrive and be the best that they can be. I have always been passionate about helping children to be multilingual as well as encouraging them to look after each other and our planet.

Things I like outside of the nursery: Art, photography, badminton and exploring new places with my son and my dog!
