Staff at White Post

Our 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 at this nursery 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. We also have three nursery nurses who hold Early Years degree qualifications. 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.

Rachael Hovell

Hello, my name is Rachael and I am the Manager of Alphabet House White Post. I am a mum myself to a teenage daughter and step son. My family are my world and any spare time that I get I spend with them as a family.

I am Level 3 qualified and I have worked in childcare since 2005. I have worked in every position from Nursery Nurse up to the position I hold now. I feel this has given me a wide range of experience and I thrive on learning and challenging myself.

As a parent, I understand the importance of how difficult it is to leave your child in the care of others, therefore I aim to provide a very high standard of care and a happy and healthy place for your child to thrive and have the best start in life.
