Meet the Team CALA
Scroll down for Direct Services Team
Hi, my name is Debbie, I have worked in childcare for over twenty years in a variety of roles, the last 13 of which have been with Care and Learning Alliance, with whom I started as a Childhood Practice Manager, working up to my current role as Services Manager.
I hold numerous childcare qualifications culminating in my PDA Level 9 Childhood Practice.
I am responsible for the management of our Office team, CALA Staffbank and Service Coordinators, tasked with ensuring the smooth and professional running of all services.
Out of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and numerous animals.
I have worked with CALA for nearly 20 years, starting as an assistant practitioner in OOSC and have worked in all roles in Daycare and ELC and also spent several years as a Family Support Worker for Social Work and working as Youth Worker in the local community. As well as raising a family of 3, I also used to run a village shop and post office, this I did whilst studying my Childhood Practice Degree. I gained a huge amount experience whilst managing Junior World, Nairn for the last 7 years and furthering my studies by gaining my Childhood Pratice Degree.
My new role not only involves supporting both setting managers and peripatetic managers but also working alongside our training team with our Foundation Apprenticeship programme. I also am privileged to be a nominated Child Protection Officer for the team.
When not working, you will find me walking the length and breadth of Nairn beach trying to tire out my newest challenge, a rehome Patterdale terrier, who requires all my learned skills to help him with his socialization with other dogs or I will be curled up in front the TV watching of a good drama.
