“Over the past 10 years at Little Scholars I have worked my way up the career ladder going from Child Development officer to Supervisor and Deputy Manager. Today I hold the role of Nursery Head I feel this gives me the scope to be involved with all our children and watch them evolve into fabulous wee people.”
“I have been a member of the team since we opened. I have been a qualified chef for over 30 years. I love the challenge of developing new dishes for our amazing Little Scholars.”
Hi, my name is Debbie and I have worked at Little Scholars since October 2012. I started as a Child Development Officer got promoted to Supervisor/Head for the 0-2 year olds. I love my job working with the children and I enjoy providing new experiences that challenge and develop children’s learning. I have worked in childcare since completing my HNC in 2000 and being a mum of two I understand the need for high quality care and learning.
I started my career at Little Scholars Nursery in 2009 where I completed my placement whilst studying for my HNC in Childcare & Education. I then came back as a fully qualified member of staff and have worked my way up to now being head of the Junior Department. Along the way I have completed a variety of training from autism awareness to paediatric first aid. I enjoy my role very much and I aim to be here for many more years to come as it is very rewarding helping and watching babies grow into confident, happy independent children.
I started working at Little Scholars Nursery in 2013 as a Child Development Officer and was promoted to Supervisor/Head of Seniors a couple of years ago. I have had the opportunity to work with each of the age groups, however I have been based in the 3-5 room for most of my time here, which I love. I enjoy taking the children’s learning forward through the Curriculum for Excellence and providing a range of experiences and activities for them to engage in their own learning. I find it very rewarding to see the progress the children make during their time here, and in preparing them for going to school.
