Individual support by dedicated staff to encourage development

Carla Deluca


After qualifying as an NNEB Nursery Nurse almost thirty years ago I have worked in different sectors of the childcare industry. I am committed to providing quality care and education to children and believe that positive relationships and an enabling environment create effective learners.

I have experience of supporting children with special educational needs & disabilities and am also the SENCo & Designated Safeguarding Lead for the setting.

Sally Day

Deputy Manager

Having worked within the childcare industry for over 15 years I am extremely passionate and dedicated to my profession.

I hold a level 3 BTEC National Diploma in Childcare and a Degree in Education Studies and English. I have developed my skills through the training opportunities I have been given including a level 3 Elklan award in speech and language support and Tier 3 in Autism Practice.

As a practitioner I strive to create a positive experience where all children can develop and achieve their full potential.

Debbie Torr

Room Leader

I have been part of the pre-school since my children attended in 2015. I completed my Level 3 Early Years Educator course and am passionate about providing children with the best learning opportunities within a safe and nurturing environment.

I hold level 3 safeguarding. I love seeing the children develop and grow in their own unique ways as they move through the pre-school and prepare for the next step in their education.

Having worked within finance and human resources sectors since gaining my degree knew that I wanted to use these within the childcare industry. I joined the pre-school in 2008 where my passion & knowledge of childcare flourished and was fortunate enough to become part of the team in 2014.
