Deputy Early Years Manager
Lauren came to Elmore Kindergarten to complete work experience 15 years ago. Having shown great initiative and passion for the role Lauren was asked to come back when she finished school, which she did and enrolled onto her apprenticeship with us. Quickly progressing through her qualifications and due to Lauren’s commitment to her team to the children at Ecclesfield Nursery, after 7 years with Elmore she was asked to step up to the Deputy Manager position. She has brought a warm and positive approach to the development of her team and EYFS delivery. Lauren is experienced in all age ranges of childcare and has led all rooms in her time at Ecclesfield. She has triumphed in all pragmatic elements of childcare and would eventually like to progress her skills by furthering her study within childcare.
