      Senior Practitioner

      Hi my name is Jade, I am a qualified level 3 Nursery Practitioner. I work as a Senior Practitioner and lead the rooms in the Room Supervisors absence. The children brighten up my day and are always full of surprises as they play, investigate and explore. We like to spend lots of time outside in our big back garden. We like to look for bugs, make dens and grow our own vegetables, and of course we love to get messy in our mud kitchen!
