The Little Acorns Team
Our highly experienced staff are the most important part of our setting. They offer stimulating, age-specific learning experiences in a happy, caring environment. Our staff to child ratios are always above those required.
Parents are children's first and most enduring educators and we are committed to working co-operatively with parents and carers.
I am very lucky to have the best job in the World!
In my free time, I love to get together with my family and friends. My two eldest boys are grown-up so I love to spoil them when they come home.
My favourite children’s book is The Tiger Who Came To Tea by Judith Kerr.
Once upon a time, my two daughters came to Little Acorns and loved it so much that I became a parent volunteer. I then applied for a play assistant job and have enjoyed every single day here for the last ten years!
I love hearing laughter and stories and being amazed at small wonders every day at Little Acorns.
My favourite children's book is 'Peace at Last' by Jill Murphy.
SEN Officer & Qualified Play Worker
I moved to Wendover 10 years ago from London. I have previously worked in childcare settings and spent 10 years in an Independent School.
I have 2 children; one in High School and one in Primary. I came to work at Little Acorns after my youngest daughter left 8 years ago. Being a city girl, I love exploring the countryside.
My favourite book is Matilda by Roald Dahl.
Having seen all three of my children through Little Acorns and onto school, I just couldn’t leave the place behind when they left so became a member of the team. I also head up the fundraising 'Friends of Little Acorns' hosting events throughout the year.
I absolutely love Take That, Christmas & movie nights in with my husband & girls.
My favourite children’s book is ‘Chocolate Mousse For Greedy Goose’ or 'Kitchen Disco'.
Qualified Play Worker & Room Leader
I have joined Little Acorns from a background of nannying, which I loved doing for 4 years.
I love spending time with my friends and family.
My favourite children's book is Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol.
I have lived in Wendover most of my life and before starting at Little Acorns worked for the NHS. My own daughter attended Little Acorns and its always held a special place in my heart so I absolutely jumped at the chance to join the team.
I love drawing and my favourite children's book is The Witches by Roald Dahl.
Qualified Play Worker
Qualified Teacher Status
I moved down from Peterborough to the area around 11 years ago. I taught in several primary schools before having my two children. After both attended Little Acorns it was clear that this is a very special setting where every child thrives. Working at Little Acorns allows me to continue to fulfil my passion of teaching the next generation.
I love walking and running in Wendover woods and I love playing sports such as tennis and going to the cinema. My favourite children's book is 'There's a snake in my school' by David Walliams.
