Meet our team

Mr Ryan Snowdon - Nursery Manager



Miss Lucie Birdsall - Nursery Manager


Hello everyone! I have worked across the early years team at Barwic Parade for 5 years, starting in Reception. 


Mrs Amy Kelly- PPA cover teacher

Mrs Kelly has taught in different schools in North and East Yorkshire, she started teaching at Barwic Parade in March 2019. Mrs Kelly works in different classes all across the school and joins us in nursery on Thursday afternoons. Mrs Kelly lives locally with her husband and two young daughters. Together love anything and everything to do with arts and crafts, they also enjoy the great outdoors especially, Dalby Forest which they visit regularly. Mrs Kelly loves everything Disney and her favourite films are Aladdin and The Lion King. Mrs Kelly has a real passion for reading her favourite author is Dan Brown although, she has recently read The Wizard of Once trilogy by Cressida Cowell which she thoroughly enjoyed and cannot wait for the fourth book to be released in September!

We have lots of fun in Nursery, learning in our beautiful environment, filled with awe, wonder and opportunities to explore. The children have over an hour of protected child-led learning time, with access to both indoors and out, when our children can be curious and become wholly engrossed in their learning experiences. Adults are always on hand to support and elevate the learning within the children's play. 


We carefully design our curriculum so that it offers exciting and inspiring opportunities for all children to learn and develop. Although we have overarching themes, these are not rigid and we will follow children's interests when they arise. Our curriculum overview for this year can be found below.
