Our Pre-School Staff
I am Shelley Kiff - the Little Owls pre-school leader. I have 2 children who have attended the pre school. I have worked for the Pre School since 2006. I have an NVQ 2 and 3 in Children's Learning and Development and have completed a foundation degree in Early Childhood studies. I am lucky to have a very supportive and hardworking team around me. Our aim is to provide a welcoming and homely environment for your child to develop to their full potential. My other interests include walking, swimming and socialising.
Hi, my name is Kath Humphreys. I deputise for Shelley when required and have 4 children who have all attended Little Owls Pre School. I have worked at the pre-school since 2003 and completed my NVQ 3 in Children's Learning, Care and Development in 2010. One of the most satisfying parts of my job is to help the new little ones settle in and see them grow in confidence. I also love working with the children on creative projects and tasks. I am also responsible for carrying out the 2 year progress checks here at Little Owls.
Hi my name is Cassie Alderman. I joined Little Owls in May 2012 to cover a maternity leave - happily I was kept on after that and I love being part of the small team here. I worked at Hollyoak Nursery for 18 months before starting at Little Owls and I have a BTEC in Children's Care, Learning and Development which I completed in 2010. I have one son who came to Little Owls and is now at Primary School and another that has now started at Little Owls. I think that being a Mum to young children really helps me when working with the children here.
I enjoy looking at issues regarding special needs and would like to attend more courses on this topic. We have good links with the primary school and I enjoy our afternoons when we join with the reception class for activities. My hobbies include watching films and chilling out when I have the time!
Hello, I am Anya Yates and I joined the Little Owls team in January 2016. I have an Honours Degree in Early Childhood Studies and have worked with children for 7 years having previously been a childminder. I have a young child who comes to Little Owls and he enjoys the time he spends here.
