Meet the team


Nursery Manager Lydia Adams

“Hello, I am Lydia and I am going to be your Nursery Manager. I live locally myself, and I am a mum to 3 busy boys. I began working in Early Years in 2007, alongside my childcare studies. On completion of my Level 3 Diploma in Childcare I still felt hungry to learn, and I went on to study for my Early Years Foundation Degree at Kingston University, which I completed in 2013.

I am passionate about high quality early years provision, and committed to providing an outstanding service to all our children and their families too. I love spending time in the rooms interacting with the children and the staff. My extensive day nursery background gives me a deep understanding of Nursery life, and I use my first-hand experience to support the team here on a day-to-day basis.

I was the Manager here at Little Oaks in 2015 before I had my youngest son, in July of that year. As such, I have a clear shared vision for the Nursery, which has enabled me to jump straight back into life here at Little Oaks. I was delighted to be offered the opportunity to take care of the Nursery again, it is a fantastic setting which I am proud to be a part of.”



Deputy Manager

I am the Deputy Manager at Little Oaks. I started my career in childcare in 2012 and over the years I have worked my way up the childcare career ladder and have achieved my level 4 in Early Years. My journey at Little Oaks began in Summer 2019, where I was hired as the Pre-school room leader. I enjoyed leading the Pre-school team to achieve the best outcomes for the children.

I returned from maternity leave in January 2021, having been given the opportunity to take on the Deputy Manger role. I love working with Children and I enjoy seeing the children happy as they learn, grow and develop throughout the stages. Also, at the end of their time with us, seeing them off as confident pre-schoolers as they transition to big school. My aim is to best promote and support Lydia and the team here to achieve outstanding care and education.
