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. Yvonne Bridge, EYFS Curriculum Leader, Qualified Teacher Status and Michelle Middleton, Deputy Manager, qualified to NVQ5.  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.
