Georgia

Hi Little Squirrels,

I started working at Little Squirrels Play Forest the day the nursery opened in December 2016. I formerly started working in the over twos area with a Childcare level 2 qualification. I continued to work at Little Squirrels whilst studying for my level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education. Once I completed and qualified for my Diploma my role at the nursery changed and I became the Baby Room Leader in the summer 2018. And I absolutely love my role at Little Squirrels!

I have always been inspired to work with young children and babies for as long as I can remember. I am passionate about educating children and providing them with a caring and exciting environment!

My life out of nursery consists of fun days out with my daughter who is nearly 8, spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy swimming, cycling, walks on the beach and exploring in the woods. I also enjoy eating out, music and sunshine. I also love animals and I have two cats at home

What the team say about me:
Georgia ensures every baby is experiencing the best out of their sessions at nursery, she is an excellent listener, she is fun caring, kind and has a soothing nature.

What the management team says about me:
Georgia is a wonderful team member, she always goes the extra mile and is keen to help anyone and everyone! She is so passionate about her job, she is loving, caring and has a heart of gold. We are privileged to have her on on our staff team 🙂
