The Rowans Nursery Team
We set about recruiting the best staff who have a multitude of skills and talents which are well employed at Rowans. Our management team consists of two very experienced Managers both with over ten years of experience of working in the nursery. Both managers have attained a Foundation Degree in Early Years and Education. The nursery also has three Senior Practitioners who together ensure the smooth running of the nursery. There is always a member of management on hand to discuss any aspects of your child’s care and development.
The nursery practitioners are either qualified or working towards their qualification, they are chosen for their caring skills and their ability to interact with babies and young children. We have a pool of staff who has worked at the nursery for over six years some as long as fifteen years. Our philosophy is to employ and retain quality staff. All staff are police checked and holds a First Aid certificate.
Each area has a Senior Practitioner who is responsible for the efficient running of their section, who will support with settling in and any questions you may have. They will also be responsible for delivering the EYFS in an enriched environment.
The support staff, cooks, cleaner and maintenance are not only chosen for their ability to do a good job but also for their understanding of babies and young children.
As a successful and highly regarded nursery many colleges choose to send their students to us for part of their training. Students do provide a valuable input into the nursery, they are always police checked and supervised and are not counted in the ratios of staff to children.
