Passionate & Committed

Paula the Manager

Paula Anderson

Centre Manager

I am a registered teacher with GTCS.  Before joining Angus as the manager at FELCC I was a teacher in Fife.  I have experience working in all stages of a primary school.  Prior to this role I was an Early Years Peripatetic Teacher, this role involved providing support and guidance to private, voluntary sector and local authority nurseries.

Laura the Depute

Laura Turriff

Depute Centre Manager

In my early career I worked as an Additional Support Needs Assistant in primary and secondary education settings before beginning my journey into early years. Having gained many years’ experience as an Early Years Practitioner in Dundee, I studied BA Childhood Practice through Dundee University which I achieved with distinction. Prior to this post I worked as a Senior Early Years Practitioner at a large stand-alone nursery in Dundee catering for children from the local community and children from across the city with complex and varied additional support needs.

The Staff

Our staff have a wealth of experience in education and childcare having worked in local authority, private and voluntary settings.  Staff have worked within Angus Council as well as other local authorities including Dundee and Fife bringing with them a wide range of experiences and skills.

 

​As well as holding relevant qualifications from SVQ's to degrees, staff have received training in the following areas.

 

 

​All staff are members of the SSSC or the GTCS and are committed to being reflective practitioners, continuing to extend their knowledge and develop new skills. As part of continuing professional development, we are currently focussing on enhancing our skills in digital technology, outdoor learning, and family learning.

 

At Forfar ELCC we use online Learning Journals to share, record and track observations of children's learning. This platform provides excellent opportunities to create engaging and informative observations ensuring children and families are actively involved and included in every step of the learning journey.

We are supportive of training the next generation and, each year, have a modern apprentice training with us as well as former Angus Council apprentices working within the team.
