Our Team

At The Old Rectory Nursery School we pride ourselves with dedicated, caring staff. Many of our staff are qualified; being NNEB/ DPP/ NVQ 3/ DCE/ B-TEC. Other staff members are working towards their childcare qualification, with the more senior staff members having many years experience in the childcare/ teaching field.

Staff also receive training in areas such as First Aid, Child Protection, Health and Safety and Food Hygiene.

We have a small team of relief staff who cover when staff are on holiday or unwell, the staff are therefore familiar to the children and our Nursery practices.

We hold regular staff meetings to ensure that our high standards are maintained. Issues relating to all aspects of the Nursery are fully discussed with the staff. Management meetings are held regularly to ensure that our service is meeting the needs of our children, parents and staff.

There are two or three members of staff based in each group room and each member of staff has their own Key Group. Your child's Key worker will be your main point of contact for your child and will fill in their contact books, reports etc.

We occasionally have students from local colleges attending the Nursery as their work placement. These students are all studying for a childcare qualification and are here to gain some hands on experience; the students are always supervised by a member of staff.


This is just to say ‘Thank You’ for all your hard work and guidance. Haam has enjoyed his 3 years at Nursery and has been provided with an excellent foundation for him ‘big school’. He has grown into a confident little boy who looks forward to seeing the teachers and children at Nursery everyday.

The early years are so important and we appreciate the fact that Haam has spent them in such a lovely environment.

My son has been going here for nearly 2 years and absolutely loves it!! The staff are welcoming, warm, caring and very attentive to my sons needs. They have a varied and delicious menu - sometimes I can smell the food cooking when I drop my son off. Highly recommend this nursery!

My Daughter went to The Old Rectory for 4 extremely happy years. The excellent staff instilled in her the importance of manners, kindness and consideration for others. I cannot recommend TORNS highly enough. She was encouraged and supported and left there an extremely happy, outgoing stimulated young lady.
