Meet Courtney

Courtney Richardson - Nursery AssistantHello my name is Courtney and I am working towards my SVQ level 3 in child care. I have experience working with all ages throughout the nursery and I also worked in a primary school for a short time.

I am eager to learn about each child as an individual and bring lots of excitement and fun to the nursery.

In my spare time I tend to go on walks, go swimming with my little cousin and I also take my little brother on fun day trips.

I am looking forward to working with all the children and getting to know each of them so I can help them grow and develop.

Say Hello To Emma

Emma Rolland - Nursery AssistantMy name is Emma Rolland. I started at Doune Terrace Nursery as a student and was delighted to be employed as a full time member of staff.

Since starting as a student I have been mainly working with the babies which I love. I have also worked a little in the other rooms which was fun.

I am currently studying for my SVQ3 in Social Work and Childcare and I am looking forward to learning more about working with children.

I have lots of experience looking after my little cousins which inspired me to work with children as a career.

I am excited to get to know all the children and meet their families too.

Introducing Fran

Francisco Luque Lara - Nursery PractitionerHi, my name is Fran. I qualified as a teacher of primary school and nursery in Spain.

After my degree I did various courses including the application of new technologies in the classroom and cooperative learning. I am also the editor of a school magazine “Almusara ” where I write articles about education.

In my free time I enjoy visiting museums, playing sports, reading or just taking a walk while listening music.

I am really enjoying working with the children at Walker Street and I am looking forward to getting to know everyone even better.

It’s a Boy!
