Laura Jackson

Hello my name is Laura and I am proud to say that I have been a ‘big Pixie’ for 7 years now!

Pixies is a home from home setting for all the Pixies, big and small! The children are happy and settled here, and the staff team are friendly, caring and enthusiastic people who take care and pride in their work!

I have worked in teaching and Early Years for most of my working life, being directly involved with the younger children for the last 25+ years! I qualified as a teacher after leaving school, and brought my qualifications up to date by undertaking further training over the years and achieved Early Years Professional Status in 2007. From 1990 I managed several childcare settings in the South London area before moving to beautiful Sussex in 2012 when my husband decided to relocate due to retirement.

But sitting around all day was not for me and I looked around for somewhere exciting to be. I found Pixies! I joined the management team in early 2013 and over the past years my role has developed and changed somewhat, being given the main responsibility for admin tasks and accommodating my requests to work part-time. I am a very proud parent and grandparent, which gives me yet more exciting and interesting times with plenty of experiences to draw from.

I love being around the Pixie children and having the opportunity to share in their learning journeys, and there is always something new and different each day.
