Meet the team

Amy, Nursery Manager, BA Hons Education and Inclusion

During the time I have been with the company, I have worked my way through the nursery, starting as a Baby Room Leader, 2-3 Room Leader, on to a floor manager and then on to the manager.
I believe that throughout the setting my strong leadership and management skills, along with my passion and commitment drive the team here and their practice. Ensuring that each child is cared for and educated to the best of their ability, whilst having lots of fun and new experiences within the setting.

Janet, Deputy Manager

I have over 20 years experience working with children of all ages in roles of management, SENCo and as a key worker providing the best possible care and learning experience for each child I have worked with.

I believe in and am passionate about putting the needs and wishes of the child at the centre of my work, and nothing is more satisfying to me than watching happy and confident children learn and achieve as they laugh and play.

Our team develops a close liaison with all parents from the very first visit, and it is through this relationship that we can ensure that the needs of every child are met.

School House is an excellent nursery which takes pride in working with children and on their individuality to help them grow and develop. I love the extra-curriculum activities.
