Nicole Backus

Nursery School Leader

Nicole holds a BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Studies and has always had the desire of working with children. She believes that children learn best through playful experiences, having opportunities to develop their curiosity, imagination, problem-solving skills and so much more.
Nicole loves children’s storybooks and enjoys creating her own story sacks, designing activities around each area of the curriculum. The outdoor environment is also something Nicole takes an interest in, giving children the opportunity to develop physically as well as gaining a knowledge of the world around them.
Nicole has achieved her DipLCM in Music Theatre Singing and believes that music ignites all areas of a child’s development, fostering their communication and social skills, inspiring them to ‘have a go’ at something new.
Overall, it is Nicole’s ultimate goal to ensure each child develops holistically, having great opportunities to flourish and reach their full potential within a fun, caring and stimulating environment.

Gillian McKee

Nursery School Assistant

Gillian has a wealth of experience having worked within child care settings for over twenty five years. She holds her NVQ Level 3 in Early Years Child Care and constantly seeks to develop her practice through continuing professional development. Gillian is particularly interested in investigating how children learn best and recognising that every child is unique, she finds ways to ensure that all children can achieve.
Gillian loves the opportunities that Primrose Hill Nursery offers her in teaching young children. She loves to cook with the children but is most at home when she is outside exploring nature, gardening or playing in the mud!
