Michelle Pattison

Senior Nursery Nurse

Hi I’m Michelle

I am originally from Doncaster but moved to Scunthorpe to be with my partner who is a firefighter at the local fire station in 2012.

I have worked professionally in early years since 2009 after I received my level 5 HND qualification. I started working in a private nursery in Doncaster where I climbed the ladder to nursery manager.

I went on maternity leave in 2013 and had my first child a little girl called Holly. At 6 months old she was diagnosed with a terminal illness called krabbe disease and I became her full time carer. In 2015 I had my second child a little boy called Bobby.

In 2017 my daughter sadly passed away and after taking some time for myself I made the decision to go back into early years. I went back to my originally nursery but they had relocated and it wasn’t the same environment so I made the choice to move closer to home and joined the wise owl family in 2018.

I am currently a senior nursery nurse and preschool room leader which I thoroughly enjoy helping the children learn new skills and getting them school ready. I also have experience in the baby room having previously run that room as well.
