Support Team

As well as those caring directly for the children on a daily basis there are several support staff, with whom we could not do without to assist with the day to day running and maintenance in keeping our ‘well oiled machine’ running smoothly, these include:

Darek – Maintenance

Darek has been with Woodlands over 6 years, he is such an integral part of the day to day running and up keep of Woodlands. He works entirely onsite and so is on hand to resolve any maintenance issues quickly. In addition to this role Darek is extremely talented at making and building.

He designed and made, by hand the Baby Bee Home Corner, our memorial train in the garden, anything wooden you see in Woodlands has been designed and made by Darek. We are very fortunate to have Darek with us at Woodlands and he is very popular with the children also, they love helping him and watching him at work!


Dan – Chef

Dan is also an integral part of the Woodlands Team. He is a highly competent, qualified and experienced chef and is responsible for providing all of our delicious, home cooked meals. He ensures that all of the food cooked is up to our very high standards and provides a balanced and nutritious diet, as well as providing tastes and textures from around the world. Dan works closely with the staff to gather ideas and feedback on what the children enjoy eating, to ensure his meals are very popular with the children. Dan uses fresh produce from our local butchers and green grocer and dairy produce is bought locally too. This ensures that we know where our ingredients have come from and are the best possible, whilst supporting local businesses.

Becky- Baby Unit House Keeper

Becky works within our Baby Unit Team to support with the house keeping duties and general day to day running. Her role enables the key people to spend as much of their time with their children to ensure each of their individual routines and needs are adhered to during the day. This is particularly important in our Baby Bees as the majority of the time the children have not been left before. By having Becky working extremely hard in the background running of the unit it means the key staff can focus entirely on their key children’s well-being. As well as this Becky brings a lot of laughter and love to the Baby Bees and the children absolutely adore her.


 Beata- Busy Bee House Keeper

 Beata wBeataorks within our Busy Bee Team to support the staff in house keeping duties. We found the house keeping role to be extremely successful in Baby Bees to enable the key staff to spend as much time with the children and so Beata has taken on a similar role in Busy Bees. She has worked with Woodlands for 2 years within the Baby Bee’s maintaining the highest level of cleanliness and is extremely hard working, making her perfect for the role of House Keeper. Having Beata as an extra pair of hands, it allows the Key Worker’s to focus entirely on the children’s needs and having lots of fun! Beata is also very popular with the children and they love her caring and kind nature.
