Erika Smedley

Manager

I’m Erika Smedley and I have worked as the Manager at Little Land since 2013 and I am really proud to be working as part of such an amazing team of women.  I feel my role goes far beyond operations and administration and I thoroughly enjoy meeting, supporting and getting to know new and returning parents and their children. 

I am mum to two daughters Amelia (21) and Daisy (15) and I understand whole-heartedly the importance of knowing that your child is genuinely cared for, safe and able to develop to their full potential when they attend nursery and later on, school. My girls and husband Rik have also enjoyed being part of the special Little Land community, helping out when they can.

I've worked in educational establishments for 15 years in the UK and Dubai and my business experience in the fields of Human Resources, Customer Relations, Education and Business/Finance Management, provide me with a variety of skills and qualities to support Siog and the team. My degree is in Business Studies and a personal achievement was completing a Masters in 2021 in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology to support my life coaching practice.  Away from work I practice yoga, am passionate about books and reading and I love nothing more than heading out into the desert, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, to walk and relax whilst my daughters ride horses at a barefoot and bitless livery.  I also love spending time with my rescue cats, Oreo, Panda and Pumpkin.
