Gemma Whiteford


Pre School Practitioner


Hi, I'm Gemma – Wife, and Mum to two little girls and one dog!

I began working at Little Acorns as a bank staff member in June 2016 and quickly discovered how much I enjoyed working with children, so when I was asked if I would like to go full time in September I was delighted to be able to say 'yes'!


I am pleased to say that I have now passed my Level 3 Qualification in childcare.

As the cliché goes “no day is ever the same” which is one of the many reasons I find it so rewarding as you genuinely can see the difference you are making in a child’s life and the milestones the children make each and every day are amazing. Obviously as a Mum you are aware of these, but I find I am learning more and more each and every day I am with the children and cannot wait to see what more there is in store!


Prior to working at Little Acorns I have had several other positions but most recently at Waitrose, which although completely fitted in with my young family at the time I constantly felt unfulfilled by the position, I did learn some valuable transferable skills and met some wonderful people along the way.


Outside of Pre School I can either be found outside with my family and our dog, or snuggled up with a good book – I love to lose myself in a novel and try to challenge myself yearly to read at least 30 books a year (obviously life tends to get in the way, but I find it's always good to have a goal) I am also a keen cook and as a family we love to take camping holidays on the Cornish Coast, visiting National Trust properties and generally spending as much time outside as we can!


For the best in child care call today!
