Elisa Franklin
Deputy Manager

I have been working in the Early Years profession for over 30 years. In that time I have seen many changes, from the beginning of parents meeting in church halls for a catch up, to the amazing, sometimes challenging centres there are today.


I did my Level 3 qualification in childcare back in 1992 and have worked in many settings including inner city nurseries as well as small village preschools. I have found my experience has been learned from actually doing the job rather than reading about it. In 2017 I decided to update my childcare qualification and after 18 months of hard work and commitment I completed my childcare Foundation Degree, Level 5. Something I feel rather proud of.

I hold a level 3 in childcare, I started working in Coopersale Preschool over 25 years ago, then moved to Little Ark Preschool in Coopersale until it closed, I have worked at both Theydon Garnon Primary school and Epping Primary school as an SEN and LSA. I have also worked for Scribbles Day Nursery as a room leader.

I am also a Librarian and Chaperone and  very excited to be returning to where it all started.

I have now taken on the role of Manager at Scribbles Preschool Coopersale and look forward to welcoming all the new children and parents to this exciting new Preschool .

I have been working for Scribbles since 2014. I have worked my way up in my childcare career and am now a qualified Level 3 in Childcare. Since working at Scribbles I have progressed from a practitioner to now Deputy. I love working with children as its always an achievement to watch them grow and learn and help them with their journey.


I hope to continue my personal development and expand my knowledge of being a practitioner.
