Meet The Team
Nursery Owner/Deputy Manager
I have always worked with children since leaving school. In 1998 I obtained a BTEC diploma in nursery nursing. Throughout my career I have worked in private day nurseries, as a teaching assistant in two local primary schools and ran a successful childminding business.
My dream was to open my own day nursery and to provide a home from home service.
In 2015 Luans Little People was born.
In 2017 we opened Luans little people within the grounds of Bassetlaw Hospital a site that had previously been a nursery and one I always wanted to reopen to provide an outstanding service to the local community.
I am often seen in nursery and like to keep involved both in rooms and supporting the management team
I started working at Luans Little People Day Nursery in December 2017 where I started work in the baby room, moving up to a room leader role within a few months, my passion working in Early years then grew from strength to strength encouraging me to achieve further by completing a foundation degree in early childhood studies. I became deputy manager in 2020 and stepped up to Manager in 2022 which gives me great pleasure as my passion for working in Early years can be shared and developed as a team. My greatest pleasure as a manager is to see children achieve and develop in their journeys from day to day, ensuring the children’s health and well-being is always the centre of what we set out to achieve.
Julie takes care of all the financial side of the day nursery including invoicing and applying for funded childcare.
