We support the work of all our staff by means of regular supervisory meetings, appraisals and team meetings.  We encourage staff to update their knowledge and skills through attending training and gaining further qualifications.  We have a plentiful resource library in our staff room and staff are encouraged to borrow books to further their knowledge and gain new ideas.  We ensure all our staff are trained in paediatric first aid, food safety and safeguarding as it is our upmost priority to keep your child safe and healthy whilst they are at nursery with us. We aim to provide a warm, fair and understanding working environment for all our staff and offer incentives to retain our high quality staff team.

Catherine

Owner

I started The Owl & Pussycat Nursery in 2015 after working in various nurseries in both my home country of New Zealand and in Wales. My main aim with the nursery is to provide a high quality, safe environment where children and their families feel welcomed, listened to and cared for. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education from New Zealand and a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Children’s Care, Learning and Development from Wales. Out of work I love spending time with my daughter Matilda and husband Dan. I am a big rugby fan and avidly support the New Zealand All Blacks!

I am qualified to Level 2 in Childcare, Learning and Development and have almost finished my Level 3 qualification.
