Jamie Brown

Deputy manager


I have over 30 years experience working in childcare. I hold a BA Hons Degree in Early Childhood Studies, as well as an NNEB Certificate and certificates in Makaton, Early Talk Boost and Small Circles. I am the nursery SENCO and have training and experience working with children with Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. I strive to use my training daily to support the children in my care. I enjoy seeing children achieving their full potential, learning new skills and building new friendships. After 4 years away from Alban Pre-school, I have returned full-time as the Manager and Proprietor.

"I currently hold BA Hons Degree in Early Childhood Studies (2015) I have 17 years experience working with children. What I love most about working with children is that they are always teaching me how to explore new activities for their development. I have two children of my own and I love being able to take activities home and support their development. I enjoy seeing children's faces when they have achieved their own goals" 

Hi, my name is Kaltrina. I currently hold a BA Hons Degree in Early Childhood studies (2018). I have 8 years experience working with children of various ages. I worked at Alban Pre-School for 7 years and gained amazing experience. However, I took a short break away from Alban where I broadened my knowledge of childcare working in a school. I have returned back with more knowledge and understading of how best to support childrens development and give them the best possible start, for children to flourish throughout their years  

"Hi, I am Jacqueline. I have over 9 years experience working with children.

"Hello my name is Valmira. 

I have 15 years of experience working with children. I have 4 children of my own, 2 of them are teenagers and 2 younger children. I am a CACHE Level 3 Early Years Practitioner. I enjoy working with children because each child is unique with their own little personalities, which makes each one of them special. It is a great feeling to settle them in and then see them happily come into nursery every day."


Hi my name is Elidona. I currently hold a CACHE Level 3 in Early Years. I'm a qualified bio-chemisty secondary teacher in my country of Albania. I have been working in the early years for a while now and have gained a great deal of experience from my previous workplaces
