My name is Nicola Scott and I have been at Parkfield Nursery since 2003.
I am married to Carl and live in Carlisle with my husband and 2 daughters Ashleigh and Erin and our border collie called Pepper.
In my spare time I enjoy reading fiction books, cooking with my daughters and as a family we enjoy camping, and walking and exercising Pepper our dog.
I completed my Nursery Nurse training in 1994 gaining an NNEB qualification. I started my career in Childcare at a large nursery in Carlisle and after a career break to bring up my daughters I joined Parkfield.
I have worked with both the younger children and the pre-school children during my time at Parkfield. After attending the appropriate training I became the SENCO in 2005.
I regularly attend training sessions to ensure that I am up to date with all the new initiatives within the Special Educational Needs sector and the wider Childcare Sector.
I especially enjoy developing relationships with the parents, carers and children. I love being able to make a difference. When I see this happening it makes my job so special and worthwhile.
I enjoy working with all my colleagues and we all work well as a team. We all regularly socialise outside of Parkfield.
