Hi my name is Clare and I am the cook here at 10 Walker Street.
My background is in the restaurant trade and last year I completed an MSa in gastronomy, which involved many parts of food studies including nutrition.
I focused on infant feeding in my studies and I am passionate about helping children develop healthy eating habits.
I am excited to be a part of Early Days Nurseries and help support parents with any queries about the food we provide for your children.
Hi! I am Gema, I’m 27 years old and I am currently studying to be a teacher.
I have worked with children for many years.
I am an art lover, I draw, write and I am also a professional dancer in a company.
I use my knowledge to provide the children with the best learning experiences, who are, with no doubt, the best of my life.
Hi my name is Megan, I am 18 years old and I have recently joined the Tweenie Team.
I am going to be working towards my SVQ Level 3.
In my spare time I enjoy socialising with friends doing lots of different activities, shopping, eating out and going to the cinema.
I have experience working in an additional support unit which was very challenging but also very rewarding.
I am really looking forward to getting to know all of your children and helping them to progress.

Hi my name is Samina and I have recently joined the Tweenie room at Doune Terrace Nursery.

In my spare time I love spending time with my niece and nephew as well as being a keen traveller.
I also enjoy reading and socialising with friends.
