Our Team

My name is Joanne and I am the Nursery Manager at Acorns. I have an NVQ level 3 and have over 30 years of childcare experience. I hold a Paediatric First Aid qualification, Safeguarding, Child protection along with Leadership and Management training.

It is a pleasure to be a part of the children growing and developing within a caring and stimulating environment where they can thrive. I greatly enjoy welcoming new families to the nursery and providing high quality care.

At Acorns we have a dedicated, fully qualified, professional staff team. All staff hold a Paediatric First Aid qualification and have opportunities to access any relevant additional training, including degree level qualifications. They have a breadth of childcare knowledge and experience. With a ‘can do’ approach they offer the children in their care constant support and encouragement.

We are happy to have an apprentice on our team and a student from our local college who joins us as part of their training course. We are also supporting a Duke of Edinburgh Award Volunteer.
