Meet the Team
Our team are passionate, highly trained and experienced.
The Senior Leadership Team at Walton Nursery and Early Years Centre is :
Lyndsey Murphy – Service Manager
My name is Lyndsey Murphy and I am the Service Manager for Walton Nursery & Early Years Centre. I have worked in the childcare sector for nearly 20 years across Liverpool. I am a dedicated Manager and would say I am a ‘hands on’ type of manager, as it is very important to me that I know the children and families who attend our Nursery. I am a Mum to twins Ollie & Charlotte aged 6, and a wife to Husband Terry. My favourite thing to do in my own time is to spend time with my family and friends, and to go on as many holidays as possible! My favourite food is Italian, and my favourite colour is green, I love animals and cry watching Walt Disney films!
Mary Forshaw – Deputy Manager
Hi, my name is Mary, I am the Deputy Manager at Walton Nursery and Early Years Centre. I have worked her for 20 years, I first joined the nursery as a student. I have many fond memories of families and children I have worked with over the years which I will treasure forever. An interesting fact about me that not many people know is that I lived and worked in Spain for 12 months as a painter and decorator! I returned to fulfil my passion to work with children.
3rd in charge / After-school coordinator
Hi! My name is Louise and I have worked in childcare for 18 years and have worked here at Walton Nursery and Early Years Centre for 3 and a half years. I am the 3rd in charge and work in our Afterschool and Holiday club as the Coordinator. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends. My favourite film is Dirty Dancing and my favourite colour is red.
Jennifer Williams – Early Years Teacher
Hi! My name is Jen and I am the Early Years Teacher at Walton Nursery and Early Years Centre. I am passionate about child learning and development and take great pride in supporting staff to enrich children’s learning experiences whilst at nursery. I am a Mum to young boys, Axel and Finn and I have been married for five years to my husband Iwan. My favourite Era is the 1950s and if I was on Mastermind my specialist subject would be the life and times of Audrey Hepburn!
Joanne Aney – Finance Officer
My name is Joanne Aney. I work in the office as finance officer and administrator. I love to multi task and keep busy. I enjoy my job and have a great relationship with all the team in and out of the office. I am a warm, caring, loving and trustworthy person. I share a special bond with all my family and friends. I have a season ticket with Everton Football Club since I was 12 years old which at time has caused me heartache but mostly I enjoy going the game and seeing my Blue family. I found humour is best medicine in life and I do enjoy a good laugh…mainly at myself! I have always told my three daughters to always do everything with a good heart no matter how it is received, and I have always lived by that myself.
