Meet the Worle Team

Clare Little (Head of Education) 

Hi my name is Clare and have recently joined the Little Adventures nurseries as Head of Education.

I qualified as an early years educator in 2002. I was lucky enough to get a job in a nursery as soon as I qualified and worked across all ages and, over the years, progressed to a senior role where I helped to support a team of 34 staff and over 200 families. I also took on the role as health and safety coordinator which gave me the opportunity to widen my knowledge in risk assessing and training. In 2012 I took on the role as Manager which is a job I loved, not only supporting families but also having to use my experience to lead a team which went onto achieve an outstanding OFSTED in 2016. I have 2 children and in our free time we love to explore our local national trust houses and get creative (the messier the better!) the are always giving me ideas to use in the nurseries.

Tara Sevior (Deputy Manager) 

 Hi I’m Tara, I’m a level 6 qualified early years practitioner and I have 9+ years experience within childcare. I have worked in a variety of settings over the years, ranging from nurseries, nannying to an independent school. I’ve joined Little Adventures Nursery as the Deputy Manager, focusing on the learning and development and building a stimulating environment for the children. Outside of work I’ve recently become a first time mum so my free time is naturally taken up looking after my little one and I also enjoy cooking and walking my dog.

Chloe Simons (L3 Practitioner & 1-to-1 Support)

I first discovered my love of childcare when I got the opportunity to do a work placement in a preschool. I enjoyed watching the children develop and getting to know all their unique personalities and building strong relationships. This lead to me doing a Level 3 Apprenticeship which I completed in 2020. I have recently completed a diploma in SEND and look forward to putting this into practice. I love that no day is the same in childcare and there's always chances to get creative and messy!

Nadine Da Silva Andrade (L2 Practitioner)

I like to work within a nursery establishment because I am given the opportunity to support and help children’s development. I have completed my Level 2 Early Years and am now an Apprentice on the Level 3 course. I love to watch as the children grow and reach their fullest potential and find it rewarding and makes the job worth it. Working with children there is never a dull moment and every day is different and fun. I would eventually like to become a Norland Nanny. In my spare time I enjoy drawing, photography and going on walks.

Willow Alexander (Level 2 Apprentice)

I like working in a nursery establishment as I believe the care and skills given and taught to the children are crucial in aiding their development. I love that I have an opportunity to help children fulfil their full potential whilst attending nursery and encourage them to display all their creativity.
