PageLines- Miss_Lori.jpgMiss Lori

I qualified as a Montessori practitioner in 1988 and went on to open my first school, in Barnes, in 1989, having been driven by a love of children and a passion for early years education.  I have been teaching now for almost 25 years and still wake up every morning looking forward to going to school!

My love of education has also extended to my own personal development and I have trained to become a Chartered Baby Massage Instructor and Holistic Therapist, as well as completing training in Sign Language for Babies and Children and am an Early Language Lead Practitioner in the ECaT programme.

During my time as a teacher I have also taken time to study for a City and Guilds in Creative Design and Soft Furnishings at Guildhall University.

I have two children, a son and a daughter, both now grown and enjoying very successful careers of their own.  I am proud to say that teaching is my life and I wouldn’t do anything else!

Hello, my name is Miss Louise and I am very excited to be joining The Little School in April 2018.

I live in Mortlake and have two children, a son aged 9 and a daughter of 6. We all love to bake and we do lots of art and craft activities at home, as well as exploring lots of different musical instruments. I am at currently learning to play the guitar.

I have previously worked at Windham Nursery and Jigsaws and I love working with children, helping them to develop and learn and explore the world around them.

Whilst I am a busy mum and don’t have too much free time, I do love to be outside, working on our allotment, going camping with my family and riding my bike and also my scooter!

Hi, my name is Mrs Nabeela Jabeen! Before starting at the Little School, I previously worked in a preschool for three and a half years and as a supply teacher. Prior to that, I qualified as a science graduate and taught for many years in both nursery and primary schools in my home country of Pakistan. I have such a passion for teaching kids as I've got three teenagers of my own and also my youngest daughter who is in year 7 - it means I'm a busy mum who’s always around kids which suits me perfectly!

I simply find it so interesting to teach children as they begin their education - their innate creative, adventurous and curious nature continues to fuel my interest in teaching.

When I'm not teaching or running after the kids, I love to get messy with paints and I love to read - all with a yummy mug of tea!
