Meet the team

Miss Gammage - Qualified teacher

I am a qualified primary teacher with a specialism in Early Years. I have been at Hawthorns since graduating in 2018 and have previously taught in Year 1 and Year 2 here. This year I am thrilled to be joining the Little Owls Nursery team on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and teaching in Reception on a Thursday and Friday. I am a mum of three boys aged 11,18 and 21, and enjoy spending family days together as often as we can. I also have a rabbit called Iris.

Mrs Nicholls - Nursery Deputy Manager, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead, Responsible for Health and Safety, Risk Assessments and Medicines

I have worked at Little Owls for the last nine years as an Early Years Practitioner, and I am now the Deputy Manager. I have always been interested in Makaton, recently I have attended Makaton courses which I have introduced into the nursery setting.

I have three children, one at work, two at High School.  In my spare time I enjoy walking my dogs, reading and watching movies.  My favourite colour is purple.


Miss Prince - Early Years Practitioner

I have been working at Hawthorns for 10 years now and love what we do at Little Owls. I'm really interested in behavioural psychology, over the years there's not much I haven't seen from both a practitioner point of view and as Mum of boys!

I also enjoy spending time outdoors no matter the weather.  

Mrs Walker - Early Years Practitioner

I am especially interested in communication development in children. I live in Durrington and I have a daughter at High School. I enjoy being outdoors, gardening and solving puzzles - from jigsaws to escape rooms. 

Miss Farrier - Early Years Practitioner

I qualified as an Early Years Practitioner in 2019.  I love animals, I have a dog called Oscar, who I enjoy taking for long walks I also have guinea pigs and a rabbit called Buddie.  In my spare time I like riding my bike and spending time with my friends and family. My favourite colour is green.
