Frecheville Nursery

Julie Gascoigne

Early Years Manager

Julie is our Mary Poppins of Frecheville Nursery and she also provides additional management support to our Broomhill Nursery. She brings her own brand of imagination and enthusiasm with just a sprinkle of magic! Having gained her NVQ Level 3 she has moved on to working towards her Level 5 in Management and Leadership and has also been working on gaining a SENCo qualification. A subject that is very close to her heart and she has gained invaluable experience from caring for her own children who have varying additional care needs. Which is also she is our Lead SENCo Co-ordinator working across all four nurseries.

Julie’s mission is to make the nursery as inclusive as possible, providing help and support for all the children by creating a stimulating environment that promotes confidence and encourages individuality. She works closely with the Early Years Framework to ensure that the nursery’s activities are tailored to each child’s requirements and are implemented in such a way that they will get the best out of every situation and continue to thrive. She can even pop in and out of chalk drawings on a good day!

Julie’s best qualities are her calm, professional and patient approach to life and her work, although she does have a wilder side, having braved the dizzying heights of the London Eye, in order to show her children, the people she admires most in world, that there was nothing to be afraid of despite having a fear of heights herself! I guess we won’t be seeing you dancing across the rooftops with Dick Van Dyke any time soon Julie?!
