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.

Manager

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.

Jackie

Assistant Manager

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.

Melanie

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'.

Play Worker

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.
