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.

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!)

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
