Green Shoots day nursery

Our people

Green Shoots Day Nursery is a workers’ co-operative, dedicated to providing high quality early years education and care. Our team includes highly trained, very experienced staff who have worked in many different local authority settings. The core team have recently worked together in a Lambeth Children’s Centre which was judged “Outstanding” by Ofsted.

Our team consists of a nursery teacher, nursery nurses and early years practitioners. Between us we have several decades of experience, including experience at senior management level running Children’s Centres. All our staff have a paediatric first aid certificate, and have had training in nutrition, food hygiene and safeguarding children.

The core team are directors of the co-operative, and all staff here may join it if they wish, so our levels of commitment are high. We will not experience the high staff turn over which afflicts many private nurseries and has such an unsettling effect on the children.

We operate a key worker system, so that your child will have one person responsible for their welfare and learning, as well as being the main liaison point for you. All staff here work as a team and share observations and information, so if your child’s key worker isn’t here for any reason, other staff members would also be able to deal with any queries you may have, as well as providing your child with consistently high standards of care and education. Green Shoots Day Nursery staff are dedicated to providing the best possible care to your child.
