What sets us apart from other Day Nurseries and Pre-Schools is that our staff are all long serving and we do not use any temporary staff. Our manager has been with us for 13 years and around 70% of the team are mums or grandmas themselves, bringing real life childcare experiences with them.
Jenna Forey Nursery Manager
Jenna joined Quackers in 2001 as the Pre-School unit leader and after working her way up to Deputy Manager, becoming our Nursery Manager in 2009. Jenna gained her NNEB qualification in 1999 and her Early Years Degree in 2014. Jenna is the nursery SENCO and Safeguarding Officer.
Jenna is supernumerary which allows her to spend time in all rooms allowing her to share new idea with the team and constantly improve what we do, which is something she highly enjoys. Jenna expects a high standard of care which was recognised in the latest Ofsted inspection “The manager sets high standards and provides strong leadership, continuing to raise practice across the nursery to give children the very best start in life”.
