Our Staff

We have a dedicated staff team who are all highly qualified and experienced Practitioners. The nursery is led by a Management Team consisting of Claire Gould, General Manager, qualified to BA Hons in Early Years Leadership. Sarah Duke, Nursery Manager, qualified to NNEB. Lindsey Clarke, Deputy Manager, qualified to BTEC Level 3. All other staff have a range of qualifications from BA Hons to NVQ Level 3 and 2. We do have three Apprentices all working towards their Level 3. All staff attend regular training to ensure they stay up to date with current practice and any changes to legislation.

By way of regular, in-depth training, all of our staff are kept up to date with new legislation and approaches to childcare, and education.

Staff profiles are also on display in the nursery.
