The team is deeply committed to ensuring children get the absolute best start to their education.
ILG visiting regularly and meets with manger to monitor the development of the nursery and to ensure that Children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and British Values are at the heart of what we do at RHS.
Our entire team are DBS under the guidance of the Children Act & Keeping Children Safe in Education, and all are first aider’s.
We recognise that nursery practitioners play a major part in developing a children’s potential and therefore we will endeavour to provide opportunities for staff to update their skills and knowledge. There are 3 inset days whereupon the nursery is closed and a requirement to undertake annual & mandatory training, which is considered necessary for the efficient operation of the service we provide.
Meet the Manager
Early Years Degree
I am experience nursery manager and I am still enthusiastic and passionate about my role as the manager at RHS. My ethos is to deliver holistic learning experiences in a homely environment, to enhance children’s natural curiosity through an emergent child-centred approach. My objective is always to encompass collaborative teaching within a creative learning environment. I must say running a successful nursery requires hard-work, flexibility and requires committed to improve and develop the care and learning for children, parents and staff. This can only be achieved with dedicated nursery practitioners to support the vision of RHS.
