The Staff

Carmen Armstrong - Lead Practitioner

I started working in childcare over 20 years ago when my eldest son was 4. I now have 4 children of my own and have continued to progress professionally, achieving a degree in Childhood Studies in 2007 and Early Years Professional status in 2011. I hope to continue my work for many years to come. I really enjoy spending time with children - there is nothing that compares to the brutal honesty of a 3 year old! I enjoy the outdoors, walking and playing in the woods with my girls, and I like to read and cook, when I have a spare moment! Not many people are fortunate enough to have a job they enjoy - I know I will come to work and laugh every day.

Kerry Richardson

I have worked at Ivegill Nursery since January 2008. I live locally and both of my children attended the Nursery. I achieved the Early Years Teacher Status qualification in 2016. I love music and singing and run our weekly music session in the Village Hall. I am a Sunday School teacher and play the flute in the music group at my local Church. I am also a Governor at Caldew School.

Lisa Nelson

I have always been involved with children and helped run the local playgroup for 4 years. I have a Level 3 Children and Young People's Workforce qualification. I live locally with my family and I have two children who attended Ivegill School. I enjoy being outside, keeping fit, holidays and, most of all, spending time with my family.

Rebecca Greaves

I have worked with children for over 17 years. After achieving a BTEC National Diploma in Early Years, I worked in a local primary school as a teaching assistant. I live locally and my three children attend Ivegill school, where I am vice treasurer of the PTA. In my spare time I enjoy baking, walking, being outdoors and spending time with my family.
