Meet the team
Miss Hobbs - EYFS Phase Leader & Nursery Teacher (Currently on maternity leave)
I joined Floreat in September 2019 after working at a large village primary school in Buckinghamshire for over seven years. During these years, I not only worked in various classroom support roles across many different year groups but also trained to be a primary school teacher at Oxford Brookes University, graduating with an English specialism primary degree. Whilst studying, I worked for a year as an unqualified teacher and this is where my love for Early Years was born.
I am passionate about developing the holistic child as well teaching the academic curriculum.
Outside of school, I work in a volunteer role at the Wokingham Foodbank and assist at the weekends with supermarket collections. I recently got married & enjoy exploring new countries with my husband, spending time with family and friends, diving into a good book, cooking and buying many toys for my usual combination of pets (a cat and a mouse!).
Kayleigh Puryer - Nursery Lead
I began my teaching career in 2011, following a degree in Primary Education with Art at the University of Winchester. After moving back to my home town of Wokingham, I started my teaching career in KS2. After that I moved to teach year 1 and I have more recently enjoyed teaching in reception.
I have found a real passion for teaching the Early Years Curriculum. I enjoy inspiring children to become inquisitive, creative and kind learners through creating hands-on play based learning opportunities. I am now very excited to continue my love for teaching in Early Years with the Nursery children at Floreat Montague Park.
Outside of school I enjoy drawing and painting and being around nature.I love to explore new places and have been lucky enough to spend some time travelling to different parts of the world and meeting lots of interesting people from different cultures. My favourite country so far is Peru. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and my little cat Billy.
I relocated from London to Wokingham in 2019 and left behind the fashion industry to share my creativity with children. Before joining the team at Floreat Montague Park, I worked in SEN schools as a Teaching Assistant.
In my spare time I still create garments for myself and family as well as exploring Berkshire by foot and bike.
I hope to build a strong bond with your child and support them with their development and help them to thrive on their new adventure.
I grew up in Agios Nikolaos, a small town in Eastern Crete. I am a qualified teacher and have worked in Preschool education for seven years. After completing my studies in Early Childhood Pedagogy at the University of Athens, I specialised in Theatre Pedagogy and Special Educational Needs.
I had the opportunity to I have worked as a Supply Teacher, in a Montessori Nursery as well as in the Special Needs sector. I enjoy promoting the child centred and holistic approach into teaching.
Outside the school, I love visiting new places both locally and around the world. One of my favourite destinations is The Scottish Highlands. I also enjoy swimming, walking in parks, listening to music and choir singing.
I joined Floreat Montague Park in May 2023 as an Early Years Apprentice. Prior to this I worked voluntarily as a teaching assistant in a reception classroom, after gaining a Distinction in both Child Development and Health and Social Care. Outside of work, I enjoy travelling around the UK and exploring new places. My favourite place so far is Cornwall. I also love spending time with family and friends and of course my cat Dobby.

All our Nursery staff will get to know your child well and all have the responsibility to identify how your child learns through their play and be responsible for ensuring that the care your little one receives meets their individual needs. The class teacher will be your first point of contact for any questions you might have.
At Floreat Montague Park Nursery we use an online system called Tapestry to make regular observations of your child - we write down what they say and do and take lots of photos to keep you updated with how they are getting on.
We have an open-door policy, so please come in and speak to us if you have questions or need some more information.
