Mrs Martin has held a variety of teaching positions in both the Nursery and Primary sector before commencing her role as Principal here at Ballymoney Nursery School in September 2004.

Originally from Cookstown, Mrs Martin now lives in Coleraine with her husband and two daughters. When not at school she keeps herself stress free with regular family walks along local beaches, doing yoga, and, of course, no weekend would be complete without some form of retail therapy.


After several years teaching in a Nursery School in Belfast, Mrs McClelland took up her current post here in Ballymoney Nursery School in January 1999.


Her extensive knowledge of shops, the length and breadth of the country, ensures the children are supplied with a constant stream of new resources.  In her spare time, she is an accompanist for a choir.


Ms McCarron is the newest recruit to the team here at Ballymoney Nursery School. 

She is no stranger to Ballymoney, having taught in the Preparatory Department of Dalriada School for 15 years. Her specialisation is as an Early Years teacher but she has also enjoyed teaching classes at Key Stages 1 and 2. She takes a keen interest in the Arts and loves sharing her creativity with the young pupils in her care.  Ms McCarron lives in Articlave where she enjoys walking her dog or horse- riding on the local beaches.  She is passionate about the environment and enjoys spending time out in the countryside observing and photographing wildlife.


Mrs Simpson is currently the longest serving member of staff. After working in the Nursery for some years she returned part-time to the Causeway Institute and gained an NVQ Level 3 qualification.

Her meticulous memory for sending letters and cards for every occasion means the Royal Mail in Ballymoney are grateful to her for keeping them in business.

Mrs Hollis joined the staff at Ballymoney Nursery School having previously worked in a local Primary School. In addition to her role as Nursery Assistant, she welcomes and cares for all creatures great and small, visiting the nursery.


Away from the classroom, Mrs Hollis has completed a sign language course.

Miss Johnston attended Dalriada School and then gained a B.T.E.C. at the Causeway Institute in Ballymoney. During her time at the Nursery, part of her assigned duties have included working with children with special needs.

At home Miss Johnston is a busy mum to twin boys and a little girl.

Sharon McMillan has been at the Nursery since 1991. She often finds herself confronted with all sorts of daily problems and has become an expert working with a variety of tools and implements. No job too big or small is her motto.


Sharon lives locally and has three grown up sons and grandchildren. She enjoys travelling.
