Meet Our Team
Qualifications and standards are a priority at our Nursery and you can read more about the qualifications our staff have in the Parent Information area of our web site.

All staff have been trained in First Aid, are checked by the Criminal Records Bureau and attend courses in 'Safeguarding' children as part of our recruitment process.

Our Nursery is regulated by the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Welfare Requirements, which state there must be a minimum ratio of adults carers to each group of children.

  • With children of age 6 months -2 years there must be 1 adult to 3 children
  • 2-3 years, 1 adult to 4 children
  • 3-5 years, 1 adult to 8 children

In practice we often have higher numbers of adults to children than this statutory minimum.

1. Management

Sarah Simpson- Nursery Manager
My name is Sarah Simpson. I joined the Nursery in December 2005. I am the Nursery Manager and SENCO - Speacial Educational Needs Co-Ordinator.

I have a degree in Early Years and now have gained the Early Years Professional Status qualification.

I work in both of the rooms at times. I am the Student co-ordinator - we take students from local colleges and schools.

As SENCO I work closely with the ISCAN team (Inclusion and support for children with additional needs). I take a special interest in those children who need additional help and support.
