Loraine Brookes

Senior Practitioner for Baby Bumble Bees


I am a Senior Practitioner in the Baby Room and hold a Level 3 qualification in Childcare. I started at Lemongrove when it first opened.

I enjoy working with the babies and I am passionate about providing a warm and welcoming environment where the babies in my care feel happy, safe and secure. This in turn helps to recognise the individual developmental needs of each child.

I feel it is important to show sensitivity and empathy to our babies and carers to create a happy partnership for their time spent at Lemongrove. Communication and the personal touch help to achieve this.

Having worked here for a long time I feel a sense of pride watching our babies move through the nursery and on to school!
