Our nursery is built on our team.
We believe one of our strengths as a little family-run nursery, is that we treat each other like family too.
We pride ourselves on offering that 'home-from-home' feeling at nursery, and we hope that when your child attends our setting, you feel part of that.
When you send your child to us, you are welcoming us in to your lives. So we believe it is important for you to know a little bit about us too, not only professionally, but as people too :)
A few things about us as a team:
Our Manager holds a degree in Early Years
Our team members are all Level 3 qualified and above, and some other members of our team also hold Early Years related degrees
All of our staff, including cooks, are paediatric first aid trained
proud to say we have a really low staff turnover. Some of our team have been with us for more than 10 years!
Amy is one of our Directors. She has a BA Hons degree and handles the business and operational side of nursery. You might see her around nursery with anything from a pen, to a screwdriver in her hand as she's quite the handy-lady! Amy has a little girl and is expecting a baby boy in 2021!
Clare is our Nursery Manager. She has a BA degree in Early Years, and has been working in the industry for over 15 years - so she knows her stuff! In her spare time, you will usually find Clare in the gym, working out with her personal trainer, or cleaning her house!
