The Staff

Lisa Nelson Co-Lead Practitioner

I have always been involved with children and joined Ivegill Nursery in 2012, working as Deputy Lead from 2019 - 2021. I have a NCFE Cache level 4 Certificate for the Early Years Advanced Practitioner. I am also an accredited PanCo (Physical Activity and Nutrition Coordinator). I love working with children in their early years and it is rewarding to see them learn, develop and thrive in our care. I live locally with my family and have two children who attended Ivegill Nursery and School. I enjoy walking and yoga, holidays and being with my family.

Samantha Irving Co-Lead Practitioner

I have worked in childcare for 30 years and love supporting children in their learning and development and watching them grow. I have a Foundation Degree in Teaching and Learning support for Early Years and love researching new ideas and theories to enhance the learning environment. Both my daughters went to Ivegill Nursery and school and benefited from the community spirit here. In my spare time I love travelling, walking, cooking and family time.

Kerry Richardson

I have worked at Ivegill since 2008. I live locally and both of my children attended the nursery. In 2016 I achieved the Early Years Teacher Status qualification. I love doing singing and music activities with the children. In my spare time I enjoy playing the flute in the music group at my local church, and spending time with my family.

Rebecca Greaves

I have worked with children for over 20 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 two of my 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.
