Susan Willis

Manager, Safeguarding Lead and SENCO, Fire Warden, Health and Safety Designated Officer

I was appointed the role of manager in August 2018. I have been trained to Degree level in Education and Care. I have a vast knowledge and understanding of how children develop and learn via my previous role, my degree and being a mum of twins. My passion is working with children, laying strong foundations for them to build upon during their learning journeys. I aim to get all children within the nursery ‘School Ready’ as they leave us to commence their next phase in their education.

Room Leader in Toddler Room (maternity leave)

I have been at Great Expectations since June 2014. I am level 3 trained in ‘Supporting Children and Young People’ and I am First Aid trained. I love to watch the children learn and grow during their time in the nursery. I update Babydays regularly so that parents can see their children interacting and learning different ways to problem-solve. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.

A Word

From Great Expectations

“Great Expectations Nursery was established in 2005 in the heart of Middlesbrough. Our wonderful staff and child centred approach meant we quickly became a firm favourite with both children and parents. Initially we occupied a first floor premises which, although a wonderful environment, made access for some a little tricky. We were delighted in 2010 to move to a new ground floor location making us easily accessible to all families. Despite the move to a new premises the Great Expectations ethos remains the same, and we retained our specious, light and welcoming atmosphere that created such a calm atmosphere and feeling of belonging. Why not pay a visit to Great Expectations in person to get a first hand experience of us and our facilities.”
