All our staff have clearly established roles which link to their qualifications and experience. There are opportunities to progress throughout the nursery groups through promotion, this enables staff to continually improve their qualification levels and experience. We have many long term employees as we value all members of our team and we all work together as reflective practitioners. Experienced staff model good practice and mentor newer staff and students. Our staff team are passionate about their work and genuinely care about and cherish the children parents have entrusted to us.
Each nursery has a cook, cleaner, accounts manager and maintainence staff ensuring that the high quality standards in each nursery is the Manager's and Director's main priority.
We have a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) in each setting who spends one to one time with children, parents and staff, giving advice and support to ensure the best possible care and education is given to the children in our care.
We have two Area Managers who ensure the staff have high expectations of themselves and of our children to ensure each child makes excellent progress through the nursery. They also help to support the management and staff to identify training needs and keep up to date with new legislation.

Hi my name is Beccy, I have worked for Jack and Jill since 2004. During my time here I have gained lots of experience and have furthered my education by attending various courses. I started as a toddler room nursery nurse working my way up to Supervisor, Deputy Manager. I then stepped up to Manager to cover maternity leave which led to a full time position. During this time I learned lots and gained confidence dealing with staff and parents and helping the staff to further their education. I have met lots of new people and gained some lovely friends. I am currently working as a floater working in all of the rooms as needed. This was a decision made when returning to work after the birth of my son. I felt that working part time was best for me and my family and was lucky enough that Jack and Jill could accommodate me with a new position.
