A bit about the Storybook pre school team members…

Miss Mary – Montessori Director

I worked in corporate banking for a number of years before moving to London to take up a head office role with a large nursery group. I am the founder and owner of Storybook and I qualified as a Montessori teacher in 2016.  My day to day role is Montessori Director, which involves monitoring resources and activities, overseeing the curriculum and staff training.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, running, cooking and meeting up with friends and family.

Miss Derry-Ann – Nursery Manager

Being in childcare since 2007, I have worked my way up from teaching assistant to Nursery Manager.  I have a degree in Physical Education, an NVQ level 3 in childcare and an Early Years Professional Status. I am a qualified assessor for childcare qualifications and the Early Years Teacher status and I am currently completing my Montessori qualifications.

I also enjoy swimming and spending time with family, including a young son who keeps me on my toes.

Miss Lisa – Under 2’s Age Group Leader and Storybook Deputy Manager

I have 10 years experience working in childcare with all age ranges – from 3 months to 8 years.  I hold an NVQ Level 3 in childcare and a Diploma in Child Psychology. In 2019 I completed my Montessori qualifications through the Montessori Centre International.

When not teaching, I like reading, spending time with family and friends and watching films and box sets.
