Our Team

Our Experienced Team

Mrs Walter
Owner / Manager
Safeguarding Lead/SENCO

I qualified as a teacher in 2011 and from there specialised in the EYFS. I wanted to create my own nursery setting where I could lead by example in getting children ‘school ready’. I believe that preparing children for school is something that needs to be embedded from a young age with emphasis placed on the 3 prime areas of learning. My passion is to ensure that when children leave The Little Bears they will be confident and prepared for their next chapter. I want children to have a love for learning and to be inspired to follow their dreams.

Mrs Hammond
Deputy Manager
Deputy Safeguarding Lead

I have worked with Children since 2001. In this time, I have worked in a range of settings including being a busy mum of two lively boys.

I’m very proud to be part of the Little Bears team looking after your amazing children.

The best thing I enjoy about my job is seeing all the children, play, achieve and grow into happy individuals.

Miss Childs

I’m Georgia Childs a Level 3 qualified practitioner and I have a great passion in all aspects of childcare. I have had experience working with children since 2010 and qualified with my Level 3 in 2012. I have worked with children aged 3 months to 15 years which has involved supporting children’s needs, equality and safeguarding. I love working with the younger children, I love to lead singing sessions as I know how important this is in promoting the early stages of their language development. I am calm and patient and love supporting children with their learning. In my spare time I enjoy dancing and baking, as well as spending time with my family including my young nieces and nephews.

Mrs Rolfe
Nursery Practitioner

I have worked in the Early Years sector since 2004, starting in a nursery setting moving to an infant school then a primary school. I have been based in a Foundation Stage class, primarily working 1:1 supporting children with special needs. I have really enjoyed being part of each child’s individual learning journey and been proud of all their achievements. One of my strengths I am told is my creativity, give me some bits and bobs, glue and a large pot of glitter, add excited children and I am in my element.

My passion is to encourage and nurture your child’s imagination and creativity and make Little Bears a happy fun place for them to grow.

Mrs Jones

have worked within the Early Years sector for 18 years. My passion is getting children to be independent and confident in their own abilities. When I was younger I played netball at a very high standard and enjoyed all sports. Having our own hall at The Little Bears Nursery allows me to pass on my enthusiasm and equip children with the vital physical skills they need. My other strength is teaching children phonics correctly, so this is embedded ready for their journey at school.
