      Ms Manuela


      Hello everybody! My name is Ms Manuela.  I came to Alphabet Street Nursery with over 13 years experience in the field of Education. I am passionate about teaching young children and helping to create a safe and enabling environment for little ones to develop and grow. My aim is to allow the children to feel confident in their new surroundings.

      I am a qualified teacher graduated Pedagogic University in Romania and I converted my diplomas in the UK and I got the UK NARIC and Scottish Advanced Higher Standard. Beside the Pedagogic University, I also graduated Law University with a Master degree.

      I love teaching and understand how important it is for my students to develop basic phonic skills and sight word knowledge to prepare for primary education.

      I believe that children learn best through first hand experiences, so all activities are taught through “play”, allowing opportunities to explore, experiment, discover and grow.

      Most importantly, I want your child to leave ASN with the confidence and skills to help them meet the challenges that lie ahead in the school system and beyond. I firmly believe that this should be a joint effort between ‘Nursery’ and ‘parents’, and we are doing our best  to promote the right environment for such a partnership to succeed.

      Children in my classroom will be exposed to a variety of different learning resources which will allow children to explore and develop whilst building up new ideas and concepts. Activities carried out by me and my staff during class hours, are prepared with the interests and needs of the children being considered and also in accordance to the seven areas of learning in the EYFS guidelines.
