Sharon Dwyer

Manager & Proprietor

I have over 30 years experience working in childcare. I hold a BA Hons Degree in Early Childhood Studies (2012), 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.

It takes a big heart to shape little minds

Deputy Manager

"I currently hold BA Hons Degree in Early Childhood Studies (2015) I have 18 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" 


3rd in charge

Hi, my name is Kaltrina. I currently hold a BA Hons Degree in Early Childhood studies (2018). I have 9 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, my name is Lily

I am currently studying my CACHE level 3 early educator course. This is my second year here at Alban preschool. Outside of Alban, I have achieved my lifeguarding qualification where I teach young children how to swim. I have also acquired my Paediatric first aid certificate. I have always enjoyed being able to help younger children and I wish to continue this here at Alban preschool where I have learnt the importance of childrens development during these early years.


"Hi, I am Jacqueline. I have over 10 years experience working with children.

I am a CACHE Level 3 Early Years Practitioner. I really enjoying working with children as they are really honest and unique, every child is individual and they all have their own character and it is a honour to work with them."


"Hello my name is Valmira. 

I have 16 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 Dawn. 


I have recently joined Alban Pre-School as a student to study Cache Level 2 Early Years Practitioner, after deciding to have a career change.


I love working with children and look forward to supporting them to achieve their goals and to watch their personal development grow.


Yours Sincerely




My name's Viv and I've been doing volunteer work with children of various ages for around 15 years, both in the UK and the US. 

I love that much of Early Years education is focused on the children's interests, and what sparks their excitement. I especially enjoy the creative side of working with this age group, particularly story telling.

In September I'm starting a Primary PGCE. 

We regularly take students from Barnet and Southgate College as part of their work based practice development skills.
