Mrs Sheila O’Brien

Life before Longacre

After attaining my NNEB I became a private nanny for many years before becoming a Nursery Manager of a day nursery. I joined the Longacre family as a parent when my three children started in Nursery through to Form VI. I was offered a job in Early Years when my youngest started in Reception and have worked in both Kindergarten and Nursery for the past 10 years.

Roles at School

As Nursery Leader I have the privilege of working with the Early Years team to introduce our youngest children to a stimulating, secure and nurturing environment to learn through play and real experiences, helping them grow physically, intellectually and emotionally.

Away from the Classroom

I have my lovely husband, three children and dog to keep me busy but I also enjoy dance and yoga classes, reading, walking and skiing.
