It is with sadness that we have to say farewell to Mrs Jacqui Johnson and Mrs Sally Drew at the end of this month. Combined, they have given over 24 years of amazing service and commitment to the nursery.

They have both been extremely valued members of the team, and have helped so many children grow, develop and build great learning foundations ahead of starting school. I’m sure everyone will join us in thanking them, and we wish them every success in their new adventures.

On a lighter note, we will be welcoming Mrs Sue Farrant to the team as our new nursery manager on December 5th. She has extensive experience in early years’ education, and I’m sure everyone will make her feel welcome.

Mrs Jo Gillespie will be taking over from Mrs Drew, and will be our new senior nursery nurse from December.

We would also like to welcome Jazz, who some of you may have already met. She is with us on a one-year childcare placement, and I’m certain she will be a great addition to the nursery this coming school year.
