Clare Little Gillian Martin

Nursery Manager

Hi my name is Clare Little and I have been manager since July 2012

I have worked at the nursery since October 2002 after leaving Weston College.

I have always loved looking after children and knew that I wanted to go into childcare from a young age.

When I first started at Weston I was based in the 1-2's age range before applying for assistant room manger in the Toddler room. Throughout my time at the nursery i have gained experience in all ages.

As part of a team I enjoy watching the progress of the nursery unfold as we are forever introducing new exciting initiatives and resources for the children to explore.
