Meet the Staff

Linden Green (Owner)

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. In fact some of the mums and dads once attended Elswick House as babies and toddlers themselves.

 Linden is very proud of her young staff  and is delighted to introduce them to you ....

Michelle - Nursery Manager

 We are delighted to welcome Michelle to Elswick House. She is very well qualified and has considerable childcare and managerial experience. Michelle grew up on a farm and has an affinity with the outdoors, which fits perfectly in with the Elswick House ethos. Having recently moved into the village, Michelle reckons she has the best commute in the world.

Kiera - Deputy Manager

Kiera is a fully qualified Nursery Nurse, who joined us in 2018 and was promoted to Toddler Room Leader early in 2019. When the vacancy for a Deputy Manager arose, Kiera was the obvious choice and she has taken on her new responsibilities wonderfully well. She recently abseiled down Millennium Point in Birmingham and raised £2,000 for a charity close to her heart.

Stephanie - Senior Nursery Nurse and Pre-school Leader

Stephanie has always wanted to work with children and so she followed her heart by choosing to take a degree in Childhood Studies at Aberystwyth University, where she gained a very good 2.1. She has done voluntary work in East Africa and lists baking as one of her hobbies. Steph is well organised, caring and a real asset to the Nursery.

Harriet - Assistant Deputy Manager

Harriet is a fully qualified Nursery Nurse and is one of our younger members of staff. Harriet is a bright, bubbly and very confident young lady, who is always ready to roll up her sleeves and help. She has gained a lot of experience while she has been with us and has developed into a first rate Nursery Nurse. Harriet is a real asset to Elswick House. 

Sam - Nursery Nurse

Sam has been with us since 2010 and is our longest serving member of staff. She got married last year and so life has been very exciting for her recently. Having spent most of the last 10 years working with other people's babies, Sam is currently looking after her own, and is thoroughly enjoying the experience! We look forward to Sam's return in the summer.

Amy - Room Leader

Amy joined the staff at Elswick House in the summer of 2019. Sheis a fully qualified Nursery Nurse, who loves children and has rapidly developed a wonderful rapport with them. She claims to be a good listener, which is a big asset, as we have 31 little talkers all demanding attention. Amy also has a long list of voluntary work to her name. 

Naima - Nursery Nurse

Naima acquired a 1st Class BA (Hons)degree in Early Childhood Studies at the University of Wales in 2017 and then worked for two years in a Children's Centre in Cardigan. She is newly married and has recently moved into the Lichfield area. Naima tells us she has always wanted to work with children and we are delighted to welcome her to Elswick House.

Danielle - Room Leader

Danielle is a fully qualified Nursery Nurse, highly motivated and with four years experience within the profession. She has previously  worked with all age groups, though much of her training has been with babies. Danielle has a nice sense of fun and lists llama walking amongst her interests.  We believe Danielle will be a real asset to the Nursery!

Siobhan - Room Leader

Siobhan has spent three years working on Cruise Ships as Assistant Youth Director for children aged 6 months through to teenagers. She is a team player, very committed and passionate about childcare. Siobhan is extremely well qualified, with an Honours Degree in Dance, and she aims to bring high quality dance and performance to the children at Elswick House.

Kim - Nursery Nurse

Kim is currently supporting the Senior Management Team with administrative tasks. She is a fully qualified and experienced Nursery Nurse, who numbers cross-stitch and meditation among her interests. Kim is always prepared to help and her willingness to roll up her sleeves at a moments notice has endeared her to the staff.

Jane - Nursery Nurse

Jane is a fully qualified and highly competent Nursery Nurse with considerable experience of working with children. She comes to us with wonderful references and we are delighted to gain her services. She is extreme;y friendly and has already formed excellent relationships with the children. Jane is very creative a self-taught artist and Chief Inspector of the Art Detectives!

Kim - Room Leader

 Kim has a good honours degree, but is unqualified in childcare, which she is looking to rectify. She does, however, have lots of childcare experience and two young children at home to keep her on her toes. Kim has a good deal of common sense, a lovely personality and a great sense of humour. 

Mia - Nursery Nurse

Mia came to us just after Christmas and immediately made herself at home in the Wrens Room with the babies. She enjoys singing with the children and using the instruments to make as much loud music as possible. Mis is enjoying all aspects of the activities in the Wrens Room especially walking the children into the village and to the local play areas.

Mel - Nursery Nurse

As we all know, Michelle, our Manager is a superb trainer of staff. It just so happens that Mel was one of Michelle's very first trainees! Since then she has spread her wings and become a very fine practitioner in her own right, and we are indeed fortunate that Mel is joining our team at Elswick House. With a family of three young children  it doesn't leave much time for socialising and hobbies.

Stacey - Nursery Nurse

Stacey is one of our newest recruits. She is a fully qualified Nursery Nurse with considerable childcare experience and we welcome her to Elswick House. Stacey comes to us with an excellent reference, which speaks glowingly of her kind, caring and patient nature. She is also reputed to have a very good memory, which will be invaluable when dealing with details of children's lost clothing!

Ellena - Nursery Nurse

Ellena currently holds the title of 'youngest member of staff', but though it is not that long since she left school, she has packed a lot in to that time. She trained as a dancer and is a qualified beautician. When Covid struck, she decided her future lay in childcare. She took out an apprenticeship and now comes to us as a fully qualifired Nursery Nurse, brimming with ideas and ambition.
