Welcome To Liz McLean: Bumpkins New Nursery Manager

Date: July 4, 2018 Author: Bumpkins Team Categories: Bumpkins News, Bumpkins News, Meet the Team

Dear Parents

As you were aware when Nessa retired from Bumpkins last year, Jaena, one of our Director’s, stepped into the role of Manager.

This gave us plenty of time to find the right person to join Bumpkins as Nursery Manager on a permanent basis, and take Bumpkins forward as we work towards achieving our Outstanding status.

We have waited a long time to find the right person, and we are delighted to say that Liz McLean has this week joined the Bumpkins Team.

Liz has extensive experience of working in Early Years, where she has worked for over 27 years, spending the last 15 years managing multiple sites.

Alongside her childcare qualifications, she’s Level 4 qualified in leadership and management and adult teaching.

Liz believes in a child-centred approach and her SOUND philosophy for children:  S=Seek, O=Observe, N=Nurture and D=Decide to enable each child to progress at their own rate.  Her vision extends to the Nursery team too, developing their skills so they are working to their full potential, creating a rich, diverse and fun environment for our children.

Liz is very much looking forward to meeting you all and you will see her around the Nursery.  She will be available each day with an open door and we have organised some meet and greet sessions during the following times next week so that you all have a chance to meet her.

  • Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday morning from 7.30am at Main Nursery
  • Thursday or Friday morning from 7.30am at Pre-School

She will also be there at Sport’s Day on Thursday 2nd August.

We are sure you will join us in giving Liz a warm welcome to Bumpkins.
