My key focus is to ensure that all of your children receive a fantastic and exciting experience when attending Rectory Nursery School. I wish for all our parents/carers to feel confident and relaxed when leaving their children within our care. I understand that children are your most precious assets and I strive to ensure that my team fully understand that also.

I have a very robust recruitment process and believe that your children deserve the best practitioners to help them to progress in these crucial and extremely important early years.

Finally, I am very grateful that you have chosen Rectory Nursery School.

Daniel 1.jpg

Hello my name is Daniel. I am level 6 qualified and I have been a teacher for 2 years, I have always enjoyed working within the Early Years sector. I began working at the Rectory Nursery School in August 2021 after leaving the classroom in July. I have worked with children from babies to teens for approximately a decade, beginning as a childminding assistant working alongside my mum and moving through into different settings and finally the classroom teaching 30 children. I have supported children with special education needs, ensuring that they are involved in high quality learning but also receiving great care which meets their individual needs. Special Education Needs is an area which I am interested in and would like to take that learning and understanding further. I love spending as much time with my own child and wife when I can enjoying activities such as long walks and going to visit Cambridge, London and the North, where I am originally from.

 

I am very excited about joining the team and being able to bring my knowledge and passion for Early years education to the nursery school.

Bonjour!

My name is Laetitia. I am the French Teacher and I come from Paris. I lived abroad ( in Spain and in the Netherlands) and I speak several languages: French, English, Spanish, Dutch and I can understand Italian, Portuguese and Brasilian.

I have a PGCE, and I love early years education. My son Arthur is bilingual, and I really think learning a second language early in life enhances overall cognitive skills and improves brain development.

In my spare time, I love playing badminton, dancing, skiing in the Alps and in Switzerland. I also like cooking, listening to music and art. I also love spending time with my son Arthur and my friends.
