I have cared for children for over 20 years. I firstly worked as a nanny/childminder. I gained my NNEB Nursery Nurse Diploma in 2001. In 2009, I returned to education to study to gain a degree in Early Childhood Studies. 

I qualified with a BA Honours Degree (1st Class) in 2011.  I have also successfully completed  Paediatric First Aid, EHAT training & Safeguarding Officer training. I have a Level 3 Management qualification.

I worked for several years for a Children's Charity and the NHS. Alongside working in the Pagoda I am currently a volunteer mentor with Action for Children working with children who have additional emotional or behavioural needs.

I am passionate about caring for children and particularly interested in enabling children to develop their well being and self esteem which I believe to be the foundation for all areas of learning and development.


I first began working with children in 2011, completing several placements across Early Years, Primary and SEN (Special Educational Needs) settings during my studies. 

This experience formed my passion for working with children and I completed my Level 3 Diploma in Children's Care, Learning & Development in 2013. I began working in Pagoda Nursery in 2014 and during this time I completed my HNC Level 4 in Childhood Youth Studies & Sociology. 

I love working in Early Years education as it is an opportunity to make a lasting, positive impact on a child's well being and development, setting the foundations for their futures. I'm especially interested in the social & emotional development in children and find great reward in supporting children who have additional needs. 

I have completed my Paediatric First Aid, SENCO (Special Education Needs Coordinator) training, EHAT training and Safeguarding training. I became an Early Years Chartered Educator after completing training in 2017. I have also recently gained my Level 2 Leadership qualification.


I have worked in childcare since 2019, I have completed both my Level 2 and Level 3 in Childcare. I've been working at Pagoda Nursery since 2020.

I have a full Paediatric First Aid qualification and have recently completed Reading Advocacy training. 

I particularly enjoy working with the under 1's and encouraging them to gain their independence and watching them develop and grow.

 I am passionate about planning outings/trips as I believe new experiences give the children opportunities to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.


I have worked in childcare since 2012. In 2011 I completed my degree in Philosophy and Educational Science whilst in Italy (UK Framework Level 6 ENIC). 

I have my Paediatric First Aid qualification and I am currently studying towards my Level 2 Childcare qualification. I've worked at Pagoda Nursery since 2022 and enjoy working with children under 5 years old. 

I am in the unique position of having childcare and education experience in 2 countries. This enables me to bring knowledge of different approaches to our early years childcare/education setting.

I speak Italian and English.


I completed my degree in Philology in 1995 whilst in Azerbaijan. I began working in childcare in the UK in 2012.  I have completed my Level 2 in Childcare and have worked at Pagoda since 2023. I love to work with the children encouraging them to reach their full potential in all developmental areas.

I speak Russian, Turkish and English.
