Lovacott Nursery Staff
NVQ 3 MANAGER, SENDco AND DSL
My career in Early Years has grown and developed over 17 years and during this time I have been fortunate enough to work at many different settings. I have managed at Lovacott Nursery since June 2019 and have a BTEC and National Diploma in Childcare.
NVQ 3 DEPUTY MANAGER AND DEPUTY DSL
My early years career began straight after school, qualifying with a CACHE Diploma in Childcare and Education 0-18 years. I have been lucky to have worked in a variety of settings, with my position ranging from Nursery Nurse. Room Supervisor, Supervisor, Deputy Manger and ‘stand in’ manager. I have worked at Lovacott Nursery since June 2020.
NVQ 6 EARLY YEARS PRACTITIONER
I completed my Childcare Level 2 qualification as soon as I left school, then I continued in education, completing my Level 3 in Health and Social Care. I progressed to completing my Early Years Foundation degree in Early Childhood. I have worked across both settings but have been a key worker at Lovacott since August 2020.
My name is Leon, I’ve worked with children since 2014 and I am a proud father to my little boy, who is my absolute world. I started as an apprentice at my first nursery and continued to gain experience and knowledge whilst building my career at other settings. I went on to complete my NVQ2 and my NVQ3 in childcare and education.
I started working at our sister setting; Happy Hares, as of October 2021 and I am supporting Lovacott nursery. I look forward to continuing this at such a lovely homely setting.
I have always had a passion with working with children. I chose GCSE childcare at School and from then on, I’ve had amazing Experiences in different School’s and Early Years settings. I continued my learning through attending college and achieving my Level 2 certificate in childcare.
I enjoy helping children to achieve their learning goals, watching them grow and develop through engagement of different activities. I particularly enjoy small group times and 1-1 sessions focusing on areas they struggle with.
I am currently studying my level 3 diploma for the early years workforce, this is something I have always wanted to do since leaving school and now that my children are a bit older I have the opportunity to get it done!
I enjoy working with children with additional needs and love to see them reach their goals and grow into the fantastic little people they are.
When I’m not at work I’m either enjoying spending time with my 2 wonderful children or on the farm milking cows!
I have always been interested in working and supporting Early Years children, so was very excited to join Lovacott Nursery as of June 2021. I will be completing my qualifications to become a nursery practitioner, alongside fulfilling a full time position.
