Marie Harrison BSc, PGCE, EYPS

I took over as owner of College Grove Nursery in June 2006. My background is both medical and educational. I initially qualified as a radiographer in 1985 and worked in the profession until 1998, following the birth of my first two children.

At this point I undertook a PGCE and qualified as a teacher in 2001, working in a local primary school in their nursery unit for a couple of years.

My first dealings with College Grove Nursery were as a parent with my third child Lily. I feel fortunate to come into my present role with the added advantage of first hand experiences of the caring, professional attitude of all the staff.

I gained Early Years Professional Status in 2007, being one of the first practitioners in the Wakefield area to gain the qualification. Since then I have committed myself to providing a stimulating learning environment for all children.

I now also manage the nursery and am fortunate to have the support of 2 senior staff members who both have a wealth of experiences and qualifications. Becki Driver has worked for the nursery since 2003 and oversees the toddler unit. She is qualified to level 4 and is the communication, language and literacy coordinator for the setting. Amy Bradley (Nursery Deputy) has been with us since 2007 and has completed a degree in Early Years management.

We have grown and developed the nursery to its present standards and I intend to continue to offer a high quality learning environment which encourages children to fulfil their best potential.
