Meet the Staff

The staff at Bluebell Nursery are all qualified and experienced and are selected for their professionalism and caring natures. Most of the practitioners have been working at Bluebell for many years.
Each member of staff has good relationships with our parents, making sure that each child’s development and progress is discussed each time they come into nursery.
