Nursery 2022 - 2023

Miss Laurie

Miss Whalley

Hi. I'm Miss Laurie; I graduated from university in 2010 and have been teaching since then having a few breaks to have my children. I started at Etchells in 2015 in year 1. However, this was not my first time here. Whilst at university, I did 2 years of my placements at Etchells in the Nursery and Reception and it has always been my aim to get back to the nursery here. As corny as it may seem, I knew I always wanted to come back to it and now I have I don't want to leave. 

I lead a very active and busy life having 4 children (10 year old twins, a very active 8 year old and a happy and a little spoilt 6 year old.) We love visiting theme parks both in England and around the world, which helps as im a huge Disney fan.  I absolutey love being the Nursey teacher, seeing the world through their litle eyes, having fun whilst learning (which we do all the time)  making the best memories is the best job in the world. 

This is my sixth  year in Nursery and I absolutely love being the Nursey class teacher alongside Miss Whalley.


Hi, I’m Miss Whalley and I have been at Etchells for 4 years now in nursery and have been teaching for 20 years surprise in  a variety of early years settings. At home I have a little girl, Orla who is 5. 

I work on a Monday and Tuesday with the lovely Mrs Deering and then Miss Laurie will continue the fun on a Wednesday for the rest of the week.

I’m looking forward to meeting all the nursery children and parents and beginning a fun, happy and exciting learning journey together.
