Becca Clements

Acting Nursery Manager

Becca is currently the Acting Nursery Manager at out Ilford Nursery

Becca became an NVQ level 3 qualified senior childcare practitioner at a very young age.

A former room leader at Little Learners, Elm, Park she has subsequently gained a degree in Early Years and Childcare. Becca brings a very fresh and enthusiastic approach to our St Nicholas Avenue Nursery in Elm Park. She engages with each child personally and is always available to talk to parents each day.

Becca makes sure that children benefit from the Early Years Framework, the Ofsted-approved learning structure that supports children’s development in their earliest years. She also ensures that the nursery provides a culture where children thrive, gain confidence and self-esteem as well as social skills that will set them in good stead as they leave us to go to school.
Becca can often be found getting messy with the children and playing musical statues, her favourite activity!

Becca appreciates the importance of every individual and is keen to push staff and children to achieve all they are capable of.
