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 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.
