• Meet our childcare professionals:

  • Iain Cameron

    Temporary Manager

    I have been working with children in Edinburgh for nine years. I am keen on participation, respect for children’s knowledge, music, and fun. I graduated in June 2017 with a BA in Childhood Practice from Moray House School of Education, Edinburgh University. During my time as Temporary Manager of Holy Corner Playgroup, I would like to create simple structures that support the wishes of the children, and the practice of the staff.

  • Carol Cerdan

    Early Years Practitioner

    I joined Holy Corner Community Playgroup in October 2016. I am working towards my SVQ3 in Children's Care, Learning and Development. Whilst looking after my young children I regularly did childcare for friends, and also volunteered in a number of different childcare settings. I am an outdoor play and learning enthusiast and am part of the Outdoor Woodland Learning network (OWL). Being a community setting means we can really get to know our families and it provides a great opportunity for some fantastic partnership working. I love music, cooking/baking, story telling, gardening and yoga and enjoy sharing these passions with the wonderful children here in our care. I feel very lucky to work in an environment with a team who are playful, creative and nurturing - these qualities create a very warm and welcoming atmosphere at Holy Corner. 

  • Jayne Weaver

    Early Years Practitioner

    Over the past 16 years I have worked as a childminder with dozens of families in England and Scotland. I have cared for more than fifty children ranging from 6 weeks to 12 years in age, and have also cared for my own three daughters. I am happy to say that many of those children and their families are now close and valued friends. 

    Joining Holy Corner Community Playgroup in May 2017 was a fantastic opportunity for me to use my experience within a team.  It feels wonderful to be able to learn with and from other people who share my commitment to creating a nurturing and fun environment that promotes respect, kindness  and inclusion.

  • Sarah McFarlane

    Early Years Practitioner

    I joined Holy Corner Community Playgroup in October 2017 after taking several years out of work to care for my two young children.  As well as invaluable experience as a parent, I also have experience supporting and working with children of all ages in a range of settings, most recently volunteering with a wonderful team at the school nursery, and previously supporting young people at transition from school, working as a classroom assistant and qualifying as a primary teacher.

    I thoroughly enjoy working with such a caring team who passionately believe that from the youngest age, play, set in a nurturing and inclusive, responsive, and of course fun environment, is fundamental to our children’s sense of wellbeing and ability to thrive.  I also value sharing experiences and learning from one another, as part of a team, with our children and their parents and carers.
