Its hard to believe that Jenny joined our nursery as a student over 15 years ago. Now here she is as part of our Management Team. Jenny is a Superstar and all round good egg! She works directly in our pre-school and leads and team of 4 educators. She is also responsible for the smooth running of the nursery when Sally is absent and works opposite shifts so that both ends of the day are covered. Jenny has two children, both who have been part of The Old School House Family and are flourishing in their school years.

In Safe Hands
In Safe Hands
We make it a priority to provide a safe and inviting environment for all of our children so you can leave them with peace of mind they are in the safest hands.
We embrace childhood as a magical time. The nursery is designed to feel like a home away from home for children and their families. It is a place where parents can feel confident that their children are receiving the very best care and education. We have a Team of fully qualified Early Years Educators who spend every moment of their working day making sure the children have the most wonderful experiences and discoveries.
Our aim is to provide an educational experience of the highest quality built upon the belief that children have a natural disposition for learning and curiosity which blossoms into a life-long love of learning.
Early Years Educators
People You Can Trust
Over many years here at The Old School House Nursery, our management team and practitioners have been working together to embed an inspiring approach to supporting young children’s learning and development. Our Team of 18 Early Years Educators are a part of our nursery family and we love each and everyone of them. Without their enthusiasm and boundless energy we would not have such a special place for the children to feel safe and secure in a loving environment. All of our Team are qualified in early years with a minimum of level 3 and have paediatric first aid certificates. Some of our team have been with us since we opened the nursery and that continuity of care in so important to the success of the nursery and the early years education we provide.
