Staff at Beeston

Our fully qualified staff are dedicated to providing a happy and safe environment for all the children. All our staff are carefully chosen not only for their experience and qualifications but also for their ability to work as a team and to show commitment and empathy to children in their care.

Many have been with us for several years and so not only offer continuity for your child, but are also more mature and have extensive childcare experience as well. In each room the required amount of qualified nursery nurses are supplemented by trainee nursery nurses. All staff to child ratios are always met and often exceeded.

Staff, where possible remain constant, operating a ‘Key Worker’ system. This is when each child is allocated to a member of staff to provide a link between the parents and child. They will be largely responsible for settling them into nursery, their day to day care and communicating with the parents about their child’s development. This enables the member of staff to develop close relationships with children in their care.

Kirsty Jeffery Parker

Hello, my name is Kirsty and I am the manager at Alphabet House Day Nursery in Beeston. I have been a nursery nurse for 13 years and love being with the children. During that time I have worked in every age group of nursery settings, providing new activities and ideas so keeping it fun for everyone. I enjoy story telling, creative activities and circle times.

I am currently working towards a BTEC Level 3 in management.

I have a 2 year old son who definitely keeps me and my partner on our toes! We are active members of the Scouting Association and I am currently an Explorer Scout Leader in a unit of 26 young people aged between 14 and 18 years old.

My weekends are spent at parks, campsites and adventuring, with family and friends.
