Andrea Campbell
Nursery Teacher

Qualifications: NNEB, BA (hons) in early years childcare, Post Graduate Certificate in Primary Education.

I have been working with children for the past 27 years. After gaining BA (hons) in Early Years Childcare, I then carried on my studies to become a Primary Teacher in 2010. I have worked in Primary Schools and Reception but my real passion is working alongside young children in Pre-School. It is always rewarding to see each child grow and develop and I feel privileged to support them on their transition to school.
