Our Team

Riverside Nursery School is led by the Manager, Natasha, who has overall responsibility for every aspect of the preschool. She is supported in the daily running of the preschool by the Deputy Manager and by our Preschool Assistants. Together they ensure that the quality of the childcare provided is the best it can be.


Our team has been specially selected for their experience and genuine love of working with children and have all passed satisfactory health, police and reference checks.


The team is committed to learning about the changing practices throughout the field of childcare and education and are encouraged to receive appropriate training to improve and increase their skills. Regular team meetings are held and the work of the team is supported by means of regular appraisals.


We operate a key person system, this means your child is assigned a member of staff who is responsible for maintaining the developmental records (Learning Journal) of your child and keeping you informed on your child’s progress, along with being available to discuss any issues. We welcome parents to add their own contributions and observations of their child too.
