Hi, I'm Miss Gloria
Before joining Little Treasures in 2013, I worked as a Teaching Assistant at RAK Academy for 2 years. I also have previous office and reception experience but working with children has always been my life long ambition. Being the nursery receptionist I love greeting the parents and their children every morning and seeing those beautiful smiling faces excited for another fun-filled day. I also love to help new children (and their parents) to settle into nursery life with ease. Each day at nursery my day is action packed, fun filled and very rewarding.
After years of experience at Little Treasures, my role has expanded to "Jack of all trades" and I assist Miss Gemma in many of the administrative duties necessary.
