My name is Teresa Smith and I am the proud owner of Valley Nursery. I would like to introduce my wonderful team of whom, I am immensely proud of :

Nursery Manager Vicky Gaunt:

I have worked with children for a number of years and have a Level 3 in Children and Young Peoples Workforce. I enjoy seeing the children develop and learn in the friendly environment that we've created here at Valley Nursery.

Deputy Manager Leanne Ehoro:

I have worked in childcare for 10 years and have a level 5 qualification in childcare and learning development. I am very passionate in what I do, and seeing the children flourish inspires me to broaden my expertise to ensure I can provide the best possible care and learning for each individual child here at Valley Nursery.

Room Leader of Toddler Room Jessica Coady :

I have been working with children for the past few years and have a level 3 qualification in childcare and learning development. I have built my knowledge up, and use it to ensure the children have the best development here at Valley Nursery.

Pre-School Sarah Carpenter :

I am a practitioner in the pre-school room and have a level 3 qualification in childcare and learning development. For the last nine and a half years I have worked with children from the ages of 0-5. I love to see and help a child grow and develop in confidence, and to help them achieve goals they haven't done before. I also really love messy play! Outside of working at Valley Nursery I love to go camping and skiing and exploring other countries and cities, both in the UK and abroad.
