Room Managers

Our Room Managers have been handpicked for not only their in depth understanding of children’s development but also their excellent ability to bring out the best in their individual teams. We firmly believe that all staff should have a say in how Woodlands is run, every room has complete ownership of their units to create a very unique and personal atmosphere.

Our Room Managers are able to be a constant source of support for children, parents and staff. They achieve this by ensuring they are in their units playing alongside the children and working alongside their staff, this means that they are fully involved in what is happening within the week . Their experience at Woodlands has inspired them to continue the Woodlands ethos in being able to create our lifelong commitment to high quality childcare which is at our very core. Their individual influence has a major impact on the way your children and our staff are nurtured and cared for when joining the Woodlands family.
