Luan

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.

Emma

Nursery Manager

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.

Charlotte

Early Years Practitioner

I have worked in childcare for just over 3 years and have been working at Luans since December 2019 . Whilst working at Luans I have worked in all of the rooms, mostly the baby and the toddler room which I have enjoyed thoroughly. One of the best things I enjoy about working with children is watching them grow and learn, watching them progress is truly amazing and to be one of the people that has helped them along their journey is very rewarding.
