Meet the team

We believe that at the centre of high quality early years provision is the team that work with our children and families. This starts with recruiting people that share our vision and values but we also place a large emphasis on ongoing support and training.

Before setting up The Nurture Room Rosie worked at Teach First and Ambition Institute thinking hard about how adults and children learn best and what this means for teachers. She has used this knowledge to develop national teacher training programmes for teachers new to the profession and also for those more experienced.

We have recruited a team of fantastic Early Years educators:
