Meet the Team

Abraham Dartey-Zaffar

I have been with Little Unicorn Day Nurseries since 2010, working as a practitioner through to being Manager at Westferry Circus, before the Little Unicorns were acquired by Bright Horizons Family Solutions in July 2016. Prior to starting at the Little Unicorn, I have worked variously with both children and adults, starting out as a primary school teacher through to college tutoring. 

I have gained an EYP [Early Years Professional] status qualification, England in 2013; which is an early years specific and relevant qualification for the UK.  Besides that I have earned a BA and an MSc degrees. My interests in the Early Years are in the areas of Observation, Assessment and Planning; Curriculum Development and Leadership, as these support children to flourish in their learning and development.​

Giulia Bonesso

Giulia has been working at Little Unicorn for more than 2 years. She has been working with children for the past 5 years from the age of 6 months and holds a Bachelor (Honours) Degree. Since taking on the administrator role at Bank Street, Giulia is now the Deputy Manager and is continuing to expand her knowledge within childcare and the daily management of a nursery. 

Giulia has been living in London for the past 4 years, she speaks different languages as Italian, French and Spanish (a little bit!) but her favourite one is English.
