I started working at Acorn in 2017 taking on the role of Manager. Having worked in the private sector for 10 years I have really enjoyed the change of environment in the state sector. I completed my qualification in 2003 and have continued to study throughout my carer, achieving my Level 5 in 2016.
Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator
I started helping out at Acorn in 2006 taking on the challenge of working with a child with extra needs. Having worked in the special education needs sector before I really enjoyed the change of environment. I completed my qualification in 2010 and became Deputy Manager in 2012. I enjoy spending time with my family and dog at the week-ends.
I started working in 2014 as a volunteer at the Pre-School and became a permanent member of Mighty Oaks staff in 2015. I now work at both Pre-School and Mighty Oaks. I enjoy taking my two children on outdoor adventures in the little spare time I have.
Looked After Children Co-Ordinator
My daughter used to attend Acorn, and I loved to help out. I started working at Acorn in 2010 as a Lunch Club Assistant and quickly became a permanent member of staff, completing my Level 3 qualification in 2014 and most recently my Level 4. In my spare time I love to catch up with friends and complete challenging jigsaws.
I started working at Acorn in January 2018, I have just started my NVQ Level 2. Having previously been on the Committee for many years I was already familiar with the staff and families. I am a mum to 3 young children who keep me very busy and i love animals.
