Meet the Staff

Linden Green (Owner/Proprietor)

Linden, a qualified cookery teacher, opened Elswick House in 1986 and is a mother to four children and, now, grandmother to Anna, Beth, Lucy, Emily and Layla. Linden maintains a very hands-on approach in the Nursery and aims to know all the children and their families personally.

 Linden is very proud of her staff at Elswick House and is delighted to introduce them to you ....

Emma - Nursery Manager

We were delighted to appoint Emma as Nursery Manager at the beginning of the year, following Sue's departure. Emma joined us in 2015, after running her own childminding business and lives in Tamworth with her husband and two children.  She is great fun, very approachable, well organised and very caring. We have high hopes that she will translate her passion for geocaching into lots of fun activities for the children. 

Jo - Deputy Manager and Toddler Room Supervisor

Jo left us last year to work as a teaching assistant in a local school. She did not feel the job gave her enough opportunities to make use of her talents and decided to return to nursery nursing. Jo has always had lots of exciting ideas for things to do with the children and we are delighted to welcome her back. 

Emily - Baby Room Supervisor

Emily first came to Elswick House when she was at school, doing her Duke of Edinburgh Award. We were delighted to offer her a position when she finished her Nursery Nurse training in 2014 and she is proving to be an excellent appointment. She leads a very strong team.

Natalie - Nursery Nurse

Natalie is an absolute treasure and much loved by the babies. She has made a massive contribution to the Baby Room while she has been at Elswick House and has helped to make the area  a truly interesting, exciting and vibrant home for the babies.

Liz - Nursery Assistant

Liz is in charge of the Craft Room and a much respected and valued member of staff. She supervises the displays in the Nursery and also gives invaluable help and support to younger members of staff.

Dawn- Nursery Nurse

Dawn is a fully qualified Nursery Nurse, who lives locally. We are delighted with Dawn's appointment; not only have the babies really taken to her, but she also seems to have a wonderful knack of getting the older children to do exactly what she wants! Dawn's time will be divided equally between the babies and the toddlers. She is already a firm favourite with the children.

Cheryl - Nursery Nurse

Cheryl is very motherly and is always surrounded by children, who plainly adore her. She has a particular affinity with the younger children. Cheryl is supportive of all aspects of Nursery life and is a highly valued member of staff.

Louise- Nursery Nurse

Louise is a well qualified Nursery Nurse with nearly 10 years of experience. She has a little boy, who is just starting school, so she knows all about little boys. Louise enjoys craft and outdoor activities and will be mainly working upstairs with the toddlers. We hope she will be very happy with us. 

Sam - Nursery Nurse

Sam, we are delighted to say, is now recovering well from her illness and is gradually getting back into life at Elswick House. It is lovely to have you back, Sam, and we look forward to seeing some of your wonderful wall displays once again.

April - Nursery Nurse

April is a well qualified and experienced Nursery Nurse.  She has only recently moved to the area, having spent two and a half years travelling the world. We believe she has a lot to offer Elswick House and  are delighted about her appointment.

Laura - Nursery Nurse

At only 22 year of age Laura has already achieved a lot. She is a fully qualified Nursery Nurse and has an Honours degree from the University of Derby. Laura is keen to learn and ambitious, with a creative flair we intend to put to good use! We are delighted to welcome Laura to our team.

Charlotte - Nursery Nurse

You can tell from Charlotte's face that she has a keen sense of humour and a cheerful disposition. She has lots of ideas to enthral the children and is sure to become a firm favourite with them before long. She too, is fully qualified and comes to us with a degree in Childhood Studies.
