The Staff



Nicole, the Manager, qualified as a Registered Mental Nurse in 1986 and worked in the Post Natal Psychiatric Unit and the Behavioural Psychotherapy Unit attached to St. George's Hospital in London until 1993. Nicole went on to study Health and Social Science at North London University and focused on child pschological development , the role of the family in society, and political influences on health. She is currently studying for her BA in Education and Professional Practice at Brighton University and is due to finish in December 2007.

The nursery is also working with Brighton University towards the Validation of Professional Practice, which is to ensure that all the staff are up to date with current research and practice. All nurseries will have to have completed this training by 2015.

After having her own children Nicole decided to put her experience of working with families and infants into developing a nursery and has thoroughly enjoyed doing so since 1997.

The Deputy Manager and the Early Years Practitioners all hold relevant child care qualifications as required by the Education Department. All staff are required to hold a First Aid Certificate and in-service training is regularly undertaken at various levels, ensuring staff are fully able to carry out their duties in a competent and professional manner.
