Little Acorns Pre-School, based at the Jubilee Centre in Bradley Stoke, said a sad farewell to two long-serving senior members of staff at a special function held on Friday 8th December.

Natalie Robbins, manager, and Noleen Clarke, deputy manager, who have both worked at the setting for 15 years, were given a festive send-off as children staged a Christmas production in their honour.

Speaking of her time at Little Acorns, Natalie commented how lovely it had been to build relationships with local families and, in many cases, care for a succession of siblings coming through the pre-school. Some of the children from her early days have since returned on work experience placements, which she said was particularly moving. She added:

“I’m going to miss everyone at Little Acorns and I would like to wish them all good luck. It’s been an honour being such a big part of the children’s lives and I hope to still see them around in Bradley Stoke.”

Noleen said she would miss working with the pre-school owners, the “brilliant” staff and all the children. She added:

“I can’t believe it’s been 15 years. It’s been very rewarding watching the different generations come through. Every day is different, which makes it such a rewarding experience.”

“Bradley Stoke has become a much more diverse community in recent years and it has been fascinating to learn about the different cultures and languages of our families, who have been so supportive.”
