Sophie Nicolaou - Co-Opted Governor

My name is Sophie Nicolaou and I joined the governing body as a parent governor in January 2017. 

I have a degree in English and have taught English at secondary school and sixth form level. Teaching older teenagers has taught me the value of the early years' stage in promoting a love of learning and building lifelong learners. 

I myself attended Great Coates Village Nursery as a child and now I have two daughters who will do likewise; Iris joined the Nursery in 2016 and Audrey is due to start in 2018. We live in Great Coates and as a parent and a resident, I feel that we are lucky to have such a lovely nursery with such a long history. I am privileged to be able to support the Nursery, its staff and the children and to watch as they go from strength to strength.
