Meet the team

We are very fortunate to now have two nursery classrooms with staff that are highly committed to their roles.  We believe nursery years are such a special and important time in our lives and we hope to create some very special memories during the time your child spends with us.  We believe the success of your child’s education is very much a partnership between home, school and the community – each child comes to nursery with their own experiences and knowledge, and it is our aim to build on this together with yourselves to create a real love of learning which will last with your child forever.

Mrs Clark

LP Mrs ClarkI am proud to lead the nursery team here at Longford Park bringing a wealth of experience having worked in ‘Early Years’ for over 30 years as well as raising 4 children of my own who are now all adults themselves.  I specialised in ‘Early Childhood studies’ at university and I am passionate about inspiring children, nurturing their curiosity and learning with fun and enjoyable learning opportunities.  I enjoy supporting children with developing their communication skills and find this especially rewarding.  I love getting to know each of the children in my care - learning about their interests and fascinations and I am committed to helping each child to become an independent, confident and caring and responsible learner.  Outside of Longford park, I look forward to get-togethers with family and friends and I enjoy walks in the countryside with my dog.  I also enjoy travelling and visiting new places.

Mrs Gibson

Mrs GibsonI am our Nursery lead in Frankin Class with our younger nursery children and I have been part of the Longford Park nursery team for the past two years.  I have over 15 years of experience working in ‘early years’.   My passion is to give the children in my care the best start in life. I try to make everyday learning fun and exciting with new opportunities so they can become independent learners.  I enjoy music and movement play with the children.  I am mum to two children and I enjoy spending time with my family and walking in the countryside with our little dachshund ‘Buddy’.


Miss Morgan

Miss MorganI have been working as part of the Longford Park nursery team for the past two years. Prior to this, I have worked with children for over 12 years in an international pre-school, nurseries and as a nanny.  I love working with children, it is such a rewarding job and every day is different and unique. I love watching each child grow and develop and knowing I have been part of their learning journey is such a lovely feeling. I particularly enjoy messy play and cooking activities, but also love those quieter moments sharing books and hearing about news from home with the children too. I have a passion for supporting children with SEND and also work part time for an Autism Charity helping families in the local area.  I am also a mum to my son and my spare time is spent enjoying days out and weekends away together. I also enjoy baking and spending time with friends and family.

Mrs Jones

Mrs JonesI have been working at Longford Park for the past 2 years in the reception class and I am excited to be joining the nursery team this year.  I have over 15 years' experience of working with young children, and I am also a mum to 2 boys.  My passion lies in supporting emotional health and well-being and I have a growing interest in SEN.  I recognise the vital role I play in nurturing children’s growth and development, and the wonderful rewards that brings.  I love to play, read, get messy and have fun! 

Outside of Longford Park, I enjoy spending time with my family, long walks and eating out with friends.

Miss Barrett

Miss BarrettI have been working as part of the Longford Park Nursery Team for the past two years. Prior to this, I have worked with children for about 6 years in primary schools and nurseries.  I love working with children as it is so rewarding for both myself and the child. I enjoy sharing milestones with the children as they are important parts of their lives. I enjoy painting, role - play activities and generally having fun! Outside of Longford, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and taking my two Pomeranians ‘Benji’ and ‘Batman’ for days out. 

Miss BrainMiss Brain

I have been working in Longford Park in the Nursery since September, before this I was working in a Nursery and as a 1:1 with SEND children. I have been working with children for 3 years now! I started this as soon as I left school as working with children, especially those with special educational needs, is something I’ve always wanted to do. I have grown up with family members with SEND and autism, so taking the time to really understand their needs and how everyone can perceive things differently is such an interesting and rewarding topic for me. I love working with children as each day is different! I love getting to know each and every child, discovering their likes and dislikes and seeing their personalities develop!

In the future, I would definitely like to continue working with children, specifically younger children with SEND as I think it’s very beneficial for their development to have good relationships with the adults they work with to achieve their milestones!

Outside of school I love to sit and walk with my dogs as well as watch The Chase with my mum and my grandad.

Miss OrwinMiss Orwin

I am new to the Nursery Team at Longford Park and love spending time and interacting with the children. I feel that early years is such an important stage in a child’s life; it’s the first steppingstone in their educational journey. Being in the nursery gives me joy as I know I'm having an impact on the children’s development. I love arts and crafts and I'm always happy to get stuck into any messy play, especially if it involves cutting, sticking and colouring! Ensuring the children feel safe and happy in our nursery is vital to me and I'm proud to be part of such a warm and welcoming team. I love music and I am the first one on the carpet ready to do ‘Wake Up, Shake Pp’ in the morning! In my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends.

Key Person

Before your child starts at our Nursery we will come and visit you at home. This helps us get to know your child in the comfort of their own home and we will ask you to complete an "All About Me" form to support this. 

Once your child starts with us, they will be allocated a member of staff who will be their ‘Key Person’. All our Nursery staff will get to know your child well, but the Key Person’s role is to help your child settle and be someone they can relate to and rely on when they are with us. The Key Person will identify how your child learns through their play and be responsible for ensuring that the care your little one receives meets their individual needs. The Key Person will be your first point of contact for any questions you might have.

We will inform you of your child’s Key Person once they have been at Nursery for a few weeks. This gives us the opportunity to get to know your child and identify who the most appropriate member of staff is for your child. This is based on the relationship that your child has with the different team members and any additional needs or interests.

At Longford Park Nursery we use an online system called Tapestry to make regular observations of your child - we write down what they say and do and take lots of photos to keep you updated with how they are getting on. 

We have an open-door policy, so please come in and speak to us if you have questions or need some more information.
