My name is Julie Laidlaw and I have worked at Parkfield Nursery since September 2009.
I am married to Gordon and we live in Carlisle with our 3 sons Lewis, Elliot and Jack.
I qualified as a Nursery Nurse in 1996 gaining an NNEB qualification. Prior to joining Parkfield in 2009 I worked as a Nanny and a Creche Manager. I also carried out voluntary work in various nurseries and was a relief Nursery Nurse at Parkfield before securing a permanent position in 2009.
I am currently the Manager at Parkfield Nursery, a position that I have built up to over the years that I have been with Parkfield. As part of my training leading up to this position I have completed a Level 3 Team leadership & management course.
I regularly attend training sessions to keep myself up to date with any new initiatives within the childcare sector.
My other duties include Safeguarding Officer, SENCO support, Staff Development Lead and Student Supervisor.
In my spare time I like to read fiction books, walking and camping with my family.
