Our Staff

The nursery is managed by a Committee, including parents and the head, who together with the Rabbi, a representative of the Shul management committee and a member of staff, share the tasks involved in running the nursery.

The governors are responsible for:

  • Managing the school’s finances
  • Employing and managing the staff
  • Making sure the nursery has – and works to – policies, which help provide high quality care.
