Meet Our Team
Our Childcare Team in Corby
My aim as the Nursery Manager is very simple.
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 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.
I believe it is important to provide children with the best start in their early years' education by providing them with an outstanding environment, offering different play opportunities and most of all ensuring that they are cared for to the highest degree. I am currently Level 3 Qualified and have worked for the Rectory Nursery School since 2016. Previously I worked in secondary school education but always had the passion to work within the early years sector. I am a mother myself with a daughter who also attends and loves the Rectory Nursery School.
