meet our manager -

welcome to KINGS LANGLEY
nursery school

I have worked within education for the past 17 years as a special needs assistant in secondary schools, numerous nanny jobs and as an early year’s teacher in Beirut, Lebanon. In 2006 I took time out and travelled the world where I learnt and experienced so much. An adventure I will never forget.

I began working for Jack in the box in September 2010 and have been a dedicated and loyal member of the team for 8 years, managing the largest of the six outstanding nurseries- Kings Langley- for 5 years now. I am the designated safeguarding person, Paediatric trained and support our SENCO with special educational needs.

I have a First Class degree in Early Years and Education which not only taught me that being focussed on a goal, even at a later stage in life, is possible but allowed me to apply my passion of the Early Years and put it into practice. I have always believed in learning through play and love watching the children develop through activities that we have set up for their learning.

I hold great passion for my job and I love the idea that I am making a difference to enhance children’s learning and development. I love that I can play a part in carving a foundation for their future journeys through life and I thrive on making positive impacts in a fun and engaging way.

I believe that Children see magic because they look for it so I try to follow in their footsteps and look for it too...every single day.

At Jack in the Box we follow a structure of learning, development and care for children from birth to five years old. This is called the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and it enables your child to learn through a range of activities.
The EYFS ensures:

 - Children learn through play

- Providers work closely with parents

- You are kept up to date on your child’s progress

- The welfare, learning and all-round development of children with different backgrounds and levels of ability, including those with special educational needs and disabilities.

Songs and rhymes have a hugely positive impact on a child’s language and literacy development. Children love rhyme, rhythm and repetition. These three things found in songs and rhymes can naturally help to boost a child’s language and literacy skills. To support this, we would like to invite you in to learn some of the rhymes we sing at nursery. We will be holding three different rhyme time workshops on Tuesday 11th June, Tuesday 18th June, Tuesday 25th June at 9.30am until 9.45am please come and join us sing.
