Meet the Team

Helen Giermann

I have been working in childcare for over 15 years after qualifying with an NNEB in Childcare and Education. Teddies Bristol was my final placement while studying and as a new nursery, they were looking for staff to join the team. I started as bank staff while finishing my course and soon became a permanent member of the team. I then worked my way up from Nursery Nurse to Room Leader, then to Deputy Manager and from Deputy to Nursery Manager. I have always wanted to work in childcare. As a shy young adult, I somehow found it easy to interact with children and it was during school work experience week that I found this out and knew from that point I wanted to work with children. This year I celebrated my fifteenth year of service with Teddies Bristol and I am proud to be part of a great nursery.

Lucy Cragg

I have been working in childcare for over 13 years after qualifying with a BTEC National Diploma in Early Years. I worked my way up from a nursery nurse to room leader to deputy to nursery manager (mat leave cover) after qualification. In 2012, I decided I wanted to be more hands-on again so joined Bright Horizons Nursery Woodpeckers as a room leader then moved to Teddies as the Deputy Manager in October 2014. For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to care for children – in Primary school I would look after the younger children, babysitting the local children when in my teens then continuing as a career. I find the varying ways in which children learn, develop and play so interesting! In my spare time, I take part in a lot of performing arts with my drama group and also teach dancing and acting on Saturday mornings. I am also a volunteer leader for the youth section of my drama group.
