Elaine Powell - Centre Director

Elaine Powell

Centre Director

I started working at the nursery all the way back in 2005 as a nursery nurse when I left University and have spent the last 16 years working my way up to Centre Director. I have trained in many different areas over the years, securing a BA (HONS) in Early Childhood and Curriculum studies, Early Years Professional status, Level 5 in leadership and management. I have spent a lot of time doing specific training around special educational needs. I spent many years being the SENCO for the nursery and got so much out of this role. Although I am no longer SENCO, I am still very involved in this area. Along with all of my training and experience of working with children, I also have 2 children of my own who I love spending time with outside of work exploring and having our own adventures.
