Room Assistant

My name is Leanne. I joined Garden Cottage Nursery in September 2019 and I love working at the nursery. After studying English, Biology and Psychology at A level I went into travel. During this period I had the opportunity to work with children. One event in particular that stands out was seeing the children flourish at a dance event at Disneyland Paris. This is when I realised I had a passion for working with children! I am currently studying Level three social sciences and will start a degree in Psychology in September whilst working part time at the nursery. I love Psychology and working with children and I think in the future I would like to go into developmental research.

I work in Sweetpea room, I love working with the children at this age in particular as it’s so exciting watching their development. It’s fascinating to watch them and to encourage them to observe the world around them and in turn see their speech gradually develop as they build in confidence. I love the ethos of this nursery and think it’s wonderful how much time the children get to spend outside; walking to the farm with them is my favourite!
