Hello, I'm Ela Konyardi

My name is Ela and I am the Nursery Manager at Highfield Lane Nursery School. 

I have been managing nurseries for many years and have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience including opening two nurseries from the start. I have completed a Bachelor’s degree in Management and Leadership in Early Years to support me in this role which I had achieved whilst studying at Kingston University.

As a Manager I am passionate motivating and inspiring the team to provide high quality early years’ education, creating a safe, purposeful and meaningful environment where children are excited to attend and learn.

I would be delighted to welcome you and your family to visit our Outstanding day nursery school!


Hello, I'm Clare Robinson

I am Head of Early Years Practice at Highfield Lane Nursery, St Albans.

After completing my BA (Hons.) in Education at Exeter University I began my career in early years and have enjoyed many years working as an Early Years Teacher and more recently as an early years foundation stage leader in an international school in London.

I believe that children achieve the very best start in their educational journey with guidance from an enthusiastic and passionate team. I am excited to be able to show you all of the quality provision that we have here at our outstanding Highfield Lane Nursery in St Albans and to share with you the wonderful learning that takes place every day.
