Meet Our Staff

Hi, my name is Elaine and I am the playleader for North Nibley Preschool. I have been working here since 2012 initially as deputy playleader before being promoted to playleader in 2016.

I qualified in 1997 as a Nursery Nurse and my qualification is an N.N.E.B Diploma. At the start of my career I worked in America and looked after two little girls before going travelling. After that time, I worked in English nurseries.

I am now married and have been for thirteen years. My husband is a heavy haulage lorry driver. We have one daughter who is now 11 years old. She certainly keeps me on my toes! I am now a qualified Brownie and Guide leader. We meet weekly and I really enjoy this. It is so much fun, and I really enjoy the outdoor activities.

I have two cats, Sox and Jazz. Sox certainly does get up to all sorts of mischief! My favourite colour is blue, and I love lemon cake. I certainly love it when the children have been baking at home and at preschool!

Hello, my name is Becky and I am North Nibley Preschool’s Deputy Playleader. I have worked here since the beginning of 2018 and I love it!


My youngest child came here, and he loved it too. I grew up in North Nibley and both of my children attend the Primary school here.

I have been working in children’s nurseries since 2006. I qualified with a Diploma in Childcare and Education.

I spend my spare time with my family and friends. I am married and my husband is tractor mad! We own quite a lot of tractors, too many, I think! We love taking our two boys to vintage tractor shows and steam rallies. We really enjoyed the “tractor run” fundraiser that my husband organised for Preschool last year.

I love animals and nature and I have a pet guinea pig called Bruno. I love arts and crafts and really enjoy doing this with the preschool children. My favourite colour is purple and I my favourite treat is cheese and pickle sandwiches and chocolate brownies!
