Our Team

Angela Gallagher

Joined: 2020

My name is Angela and I have been qualified as a Nursery Nurse for over 30 years. My journey in childcare after finishing college, started when I worked for Greenwich Social Services caring for children who were vulnerable and from inner city areas. I then worked as a volunteer in Romania for 4 years just after the revolution in 1989. I drove across Europe to live and work in an orphanage in a village in the north of Romania. Living within the community was a huge life experience and one which has made me the person I am today.

Once back in the UK, I worked as sole charge of new-born triplets for 4 years and the children whom are now in their 20’s are still very much part of my family.

I have worked in private Day Nurseries for the past 22 years as a manager, I love working with the nursery teams, developing their skills and sharing my experiences.

I am a mum to three teenage children and am so proud of their achievements and seeing them become young adults with great ambition.

I joined the Little Garden family of nurseries in June 2020 and have been at Worcester Park since August when we took over the Nursery. This acquisition has been such an adventure and one which is an incredible journey. The children, families and staff team are amazing, and we are having a wonderful time making the positive changes to the nursery and sharing the vision of the company.

Hi, my name is Sarah. After I finished my NNEB at college, I moved to America to work as a nanny. This job took me all over the world and was a wonderful experience.

On returning, I continued working as a nanny before going to France to work in a hotel as a childcare practitioner in a hotel for the skiing season. Upon returning to the UK, I worked in various nurseries working my way up to Deputy Manager.

I enjoy working as a team and helping others be the best that they can possibly be.

I have 2 children of my own who attended nursery so I know what it can be like leaving your little one for the first time, I am able to nurture you during this time.
