meet our manager - YUKI
welcome to rickmansworth nursery school
Hello. I’m Yuki, the Manager of Jack in the Box Rickmansworth.
My childhood dream was to be a nursery teacher. I gained a BA Hons in Education at a university in Japan, then decided to travel the world prior to becoming a teacher in Japan.
But my destiny led me pastures new, my career in Japan included IT consultancy, teaching Japanese and private tutoring culminating in emigrating to the UK as an IT professional 20 years ago. Here, I decided to settle and have a family.
Six years ago, I started working for Jack in the Box and I re-discovered my passion for teaching again. My passion to work with young children has kept on growing since then. I’ve studied NVQ level 3 in Childcare and had training in Special Educational Needs. I am using all these experiences to support the children and ensure that they flourish in our setting.
Jack in the Box Rickmansworth have a fantastic team of staff, all of whom have different talents but share the same passion. We all believe that children learn through play so we plan activities that are fun whilst engaging and satisfying their curiosity. We offer a place where children feel safe, happy and feel free to be who they are.
I really enjoy watching children grow during the time they spend at our setting. I love to support each child to become confident, independent and ready to set out for the future and find their childhood dreams!

NURSERY SCHOOL CURRICULUM
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.
time table key
As children enter the nursery for the start of their session, their name card will be displayed. Please support your child at the start of each session to find their name.
Small Group Time
This is a time for children to work daily in small groups with the same practitioner to work on key skills and next steps.
Stories, Songs & Rhymes
Stories, songs & Rhymes are an integral part of every session. This supports their COMMUNICATION AND LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT as well as nurturing their love of books.
C.I.P / A.I.A and Free Flow Play
Children are supported during Child Initiated Play (C.I.P). This is where the children choose to free flow play within the nursery. This includes both indoor and outdoor play. During this time Adult Initiated Activities (A.I.A) are available for children derived from their next steps.
This is a sociable occasion where children eat with practitioners and peers. Children then have the opportunity to look at books with their peers. We promote healthy eating. Please remember no products with nuts and ensure that your child's food is cut in a safe way for your child to eat.Please look at our lunch box idea leaflet HERE
Every day children are provided with fruit, water, milk and other snacks throughout their session. Fresh water is available all day.
All activities your child has available to them are linked to the potential learning following the Early Years Foundation Stage (E.Y.F.S) and their individual interests. Parents and carers are welcome to share their child's learning journal with their child's key person at any time or during our terms open classrooms.
