Its hard to believe that Jenny joined our nursery as a student over 10 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.

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.
Jenny - She joined our Nursery as a Student - Super organised, so supportive to Sally and the Team . She is in charge when Sally is not here and has the most infectious laugh! Joined our Nursery Family 11 years ago. I have 2 boys who have both been to the nursery before they went on to school. My favourite childhood memory is holding my Grandad's hands and walking on his feet. He is now 96 and I don't think he would let me do that now!
