      I opened the Nursery in Lincoln with Gemma Edwards in Aug 2008. I have over 13 years’ experience in the Early Years Sector. I am the registered person for the nursery. I spend 2/3 days at the Lincoln Nursery as I also oversee our second nursery in Ollerton. You will find me mainly in the office carrying out duties including fees, Invoices, administration, monitoring /creating and updating the nurseries policies and procedures. I ensure the implementation of the EYFS (reformed Sept 2012) and that it is evident in all practitioners practice. My area of expertise is the Pre-School and I ensure my Pre-School Leader and all practitioners are maintaining practice of the highest standard and are committed to safeguarding all the children in our care.

      I have been married over 15 years and we have 2 children who are growing up rather fast!!! We love doing things as a family visiting places and spending time outside.
      I am so proud we have maintained our vision throughout the many years we have been open of

      “Putting the FUN back into childcare”

       Hello my name is Gemma, I am the Nursery Manager and one of the registered persons here at Fun Farm Day Nursery and I have been here from Day 1 of us opening the nursery back in August 2008!!! How that time has flown!

      I am married and have 2 children. Both my children have attended Fun Farm Day Nursery and they have both grown into confident, independent, sociable and very happy children who I am very proud of.

      I have 12 years’ experience working in childcare having worked my way up from a nursery nurse, and have now been in management for the last 9 years. I love my job as I get the best of both worlds and enjoy overseeing the running of the nursery on a day to day basis as well as working in all rooms with different age groups.

      I am dedicated to ensuring that all children have the best start in life and that your child’s early years are enjoyable, fun, educational, and prepares them for the world of big school.

      Senior Nursery Supervisor & Pre School Supervisor

      Hello I’m Susie, and I am the Rising 3’s Room Supervisor

      I am qualified NVQ Level 3 nursery nurse who enjoys being around children and I want nothing more than to try my best to help each child succeed in life. I believe every child is unique in their own way but every child is also equal.

      I feel I can bring my own personal knowledge and experience from being a mum outside of work but also keep learning more each day from each child to also expand my own knowledge and give time in just simply listening to the child and being very compassionate when it is needed.
