Meet the First Nursery Team
Our Staff Team led by mother and daughter, Marjorie Robson and Margot Smolenska, bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the Nursery. All core staff members are well qualified (plus any new trainees working towards their qualifications) with the range of qualifications reflecting the diverse experience within the team.
Froebel trained Nursery Manager, Margot, is the Lead Professional for the Nursery and a certified Forest School Leader. She also has a B.A. in Childhood Practice. We have two further staff who have recently completed their B.A. in Childhood Practice, and several assistant Forest School leaders. All staff are qualified to at least Level 3 Practitioner status, and undergo regular update training in First Aid, Child Protection, Food Hygiene and Infection Control, as well as taking part in our CPD programme which each year reflects the Nursery’s priorities: continuous improvement, nurture, life skills, and of primary importance, outdoor learning through contact with Nature.
