Nicola Proctor

  Leader & Safeguarding Lead

  • Paediatric First Aid
  • Designated Safeguarding Lead Training
  • SEN Code of Practice 2014 and Inclusion Training

Hi, I'm Nicola "Mrs Proctor". I am the preschool leader at Earlybirds and have an excellent team who I am very proud to work with. I am in preschool everyday and also work as a keyperson as I feel its very important to have a 'hands on approach'.

I have worked in early years for over 20 years and have gained lots of experience along the way.

I have 2 children of my own and enjoy my spare time with them, visiting theme parks or walking our dog Blue at the beach.

Hi I’m Miss Anne Slade. I’m the deputy leader and SENCO and I love working with the staff, children and their families here at Earlybirds.

I have over 10 years experience working with children across full day care nurseries, schools and party centres and am very passionate about what I do.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family going on days and evenings out. If I find myself with pockets of time I enjoy puzzles and crafting.







Sarah Jane Clark

Pre-school Assistant

  • BTEC National Diploma in Nursery Nursing

I am delighted to have been welcomed into Earlybirds Pre School this year. I have previously worked as a deputy manager in a children's day nursery, and whilst my children were very young, spent time caring for the elderly too. 

My two boys are now 18 and 12 years old and I'm really enjoying my time working with the children, parents and friendly team at Earlybirds.

In my spare time I enjoy spending precious time and holidays with my family and walks with our dog Ruby.
