The return of a familiar face at Julia Durbin Day Nursery

After attending Julia Durbin Day Nursery in Headington as a child 14 years ago, 18-year old Elena Hull has returned to the award-winning setting as an employee.

In her role as Relief Practitioner, Elena is guided by Nursery Manager; Emma Wallbridge, who cared for her as a baby whilst she was starting her own career as a Practitioner at the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Roosevelt Drive.

Reminiscing, Nursery Manager, Emma Wallbridge explained;

“It’s an amazing testament to the inspiring nature of the nursery that Elena has returned to Julia Durbin for her first role in childcare. As soon as I saw her I instantly recognised her and have clear memories of caring for her in our baby room. Being able to see the children we’ve cared for mature into passionate adults is incredibly special and rewarding.”

Having left a clear impression, Elena plans to enter a full time role at the nursery in September after completing her college studies in Health and Social Care.
