Meet the Puddle Ducks team

Ashleigh Hall - Level 3 Early Learning and Childcare Diploma Room leader


Coming soon

Mary Ball - Level 3 Childcare Learning & Development


"Hi! My name is Mary and I have worked with children for 12 years now. I love doing lots of messy, creative and outdoor activities with the children. I also love story time, its one of my favourite times of day. 

In my free time I love reading and spending time with my family because they are everything to me. I also enjoy learning new skills or enhancing the ones I already have; which means I'm always studying one thing or another!"

Linda Jackson - Level 3 Early Years Care & Education


"My name is Linda and I have worked here at Beechwood Farm Day Nursery for over 3 years. I have over 27 years experience working with children in a variety of settings. 

I love messy play with the children and going on long farm walks.

My hobbies include watching and riding motorbikes, walking, cooking and last but not least looking after my 6 grandchildren!"

Caroline Sweeney - Level 3 Early Years Care & Education


"Hi, I am Caroline. I work Wednesdays and Thursdays in Puddle Ducks and I have 13 years of childcare experience. 

I am currently studying full time for a BA(hons) Early Years Childhood Studies degree and I am a mum of two small children. I am an active person who loves the outdoors, so my favourite part of the job is going on lovely farm walks and using our nursery surroundings to full effect!"
