Houra Qadir

Director of Learning Stars

I am the Director of Learning Stars Montessori. I hold two Bachelor of Science degrees and began my interest in working with children when I was pregnant with my own child. I find working in Early Years exciting and rewarding, as I am passionate about the future of our children.

I also believe in providing our children a rich variety of learning experiences, through embracing Montessori, Reggio Emilia and Forest School approaches, providing high quality extra-curricular music, movement and yoga programmes, and having regular outings to the community and further afield.

Rumana Ali


Hi I’m Rumana, manager at Learning Stars. I am a qualified Level 3 in Childcare and have completed my Masters in Psychology. I have been working with children since 2012, and have been in management since 2016. I have a different approach to managing a nursery. I believe education should be fun and children should enjoy learning. Working in partnership with parents I like to create a welcoming homely environment for children to be able to come to nursery and be creative. I believe children and staff should come and leave nursery taking away something positive and unique with them that they can share with others for life.
