Maria Quiroga


I was born in Bolivia and speak fluent Spanish. I moved to the UK over 20 years. I studied to be a school teacher and also hold the Early Years Professional Status. I have worked with children for over 35 years. This experience ranges from work at an orphanage in Bolivia, to primary schools both abroad and in the UK. My last job was as a group manager for a group of prestigious nurseries in SE London, where I opened the pioneering night and weekend nurseries. I’ve recently moved to Bournemouth to pursue a dream of having my own nursery and be close to my daughter, Wara. Caring for children and contributing to their early years and individual needs is a true passion of mine

I was born in La Paz Bolivia and came to England in 1998. I attended Crofton secondary school, then Coulsdon and Croydon college, where I completed my A-levels and a BTEC National Diploma in Early Years. My first job was at Bay Tree House Day nursery from 2004-2009. Then I moved to Bournemouth in 2009 to study Forensic Science and CSI at Bournemouth University, and subsequently studied law at Open University from 2014-2017. My educational experience includes working at an after-school club 2013 and at a nursery and pre-school between 2015-2017.
