Our Team

Each day your child will be greeted by either our Pre-School Manager Claire de Ruiter or our Qualified Pre-School Assistants Jill Zeiss & Hazel Cantrell, and at least one of the other Assistants; Elizabeth Martin, Jane Drage or Karen Putman.
 
The whole team have a great deal of experience working with children. We operate a key worker system, so a single member of staff will keep a close eye on your child's development. 

Staff:child ratios are 1:4 for children under 3 years and 1:8 for children over 3 years. 
All staff are police-checked and qualified in paediatric first aid.
