Meet the team:



Lora Robinson – co-owner

Lora Robinson – co-owner

Hello my name is Lora, I am a mother of two and have worked in child care for more than 21 years. My love of children led me to pursue a career in early years.

I have a BA Hons in Early Years Practice and Early Years Professional Status. I am also a Special Education Needs Coordinator and I am the Forest School leader. I am passionate about Early Years childcare and development.

Stacey Barber

Stacey Barber – co-owner

Hello, I’m Stacey, the mother of one little boy. I am the Safeguarding officer for Happy Faces Day Care Nursery and I have worked in child care for more than ten years. I originally trained as a teacher before changing my mind and realising my heart lies in Early Years. I was educated locally in Shrewsbury before going to university in London. On returning to Shrewsbury I met Lora and we soon realised that we had the same dream – to open a nursery that offered high quality, flexible childcare for all children and their families, and we are proud to have achieved that at Happy Faces Packwood.
