Hi my name is Teri-ann. I have been at Tree Tots since September 2014.

At the nursery I undertake all administrative roles but get to spend time with the children – I get the best of both worlds.

I am also First Aid and Safeguarding Trained. I am recently married and have 3 children. In my spare time I enjoy family time, cinema, reading and socialising with friends!
