MARK JACKSON

Caretaker and general all round useful person (and director too!)

MORAG MILLAR

Cleaner and all round Covid-19 Buster

Where would we be without Mo who has been upping her cleaning schedule ever since we’ve been in lockdown! She makes sure the nursery is spotlessly clean, but if it’s messy, well, that’s our fault! If you can hear a lot of swearing, that Mo being rude to the dishwasher, but don't worry, it's always after hours...and the dishwasher deserves it!

MAC

Nursery Dog

Mac is the softest dog you've ever met, in nature and to touch, Even our children who are not keen on dogs love Mac and we use him as an incentivefor reluctant walkers and talkers. Mac's our best practitioner for not asking the kids too many questions!!

 

MEET THE TEAM

MIA JACKSON

Cook, caretaker - of the building and of me!

Mia was most put out that Mac had a framed picture on the staff board in reception but she did not. When not at college, Mia does a fantastic job of rustling up some delicious home-cooking AND remembering to save some for me! We'll miss her when she heads back off to college, but she has stocked up the freezer with some great home cooking to keep us going for a month or two!
