Meet The Team

These are the people who make every day an adventure for your child


Managing Director

Hi, I’m Heather, and I hold a level 6 Early Years Teacher status qualification. I have come to early years later in my career, previously working in logistics and marketing alongside raising my own family.

I have a passion for Early Years education. I believe that high quality education and care can really give our children the building blocks they need for life. I am undertaking my Forest School practitioner qualification and love sharing my passion for the outdoors with our children.


Area Manager

Hi, my name’s Rachel and I am very proud to be the manager of Little Explorers, I have been working here for almost 5 years, and I have loved every minute.

My pedagogical (teaching style) approach is centred around child led learning, I believe children learn best when they are together, developing skills from their observations and surroundings. With children having a role model, they can learn individually and open themselves to wider educational opportunities.



Hi my name is Charlotte! I am the joint manager here at Little Adventurers and have been working in childcare since the age of 15! I have my level 3 and also completed a foundation degree in early years education and care before going on to do my degree in children, schools and families.

I love working alongside the children, watching them learn and my favourite activity is anything that involves a bit of mess! In my spare time I love reading, spending time with my family and baking!


Manager/ Adventurers

Hi my name is Becky and I am the joint manager here at Little Adventurers. I am level 3 qualified and have been working with children for over 16 years!

I love getting messy with the children, whether that be with paints, playdough, inside or outside jumping in puddles. I love the outdoor aspect of nursery and when I am not at work I love spending time with my daughter, paddleboarding and going on long walks in the countryside with my dog Rose!



Hi I am Linsey and I am level 3 qualified and working towards my level 3 as an apprentice. I have worked with children for over 10 years and I love nothing more than seeing the children I work with grow and develop.

I love planning messy activities, from playdough to shaving foam and giving children experiences they may not get at home!

In my spare time I love baking with my 2 children, going on walks and spending time with my friends and family.
