Lisa – Deputy Manager Curriculum
Hi my name is Lisa and I am the Deputy Manager, Curriculum and Quality here at Auden Place Community Nursery and I have the Foundation Degree in Early Years Care and Education. “Being a professional educator within the world of childcare can be so rewarding. Seeing the children develop from babies into young people, developing their own interest and personalities and listening to them whilst they play- their imaginations make me smile!” I am lucky enough to be in a position where I can inspire, support and provide training to driven and dedicated team members who share our vision.

Faiza - Deputy Room Leader
Hello, my name is Faiza. I am the Sunshine Room Deputy Room Leader. I am level 7 qualified in Education studies. I enjoy reading Arabic poetry and meeting family and friends. I am enjoying my time at Auden Place Community Nursery and looking forward to meeting the parents and continuing my time here. More importantly, to practise the knowledge and experience I obtained through the years to support children to develop a bright future. Children give me positive energy because I can see the world from their eyes and enhance their learning. Working with children every day is so special because they are always curious and have a sense of wonder and enthusiasm for play and learning; this gives me the courage to develop their interests and fulfil their understanding.
