Safeguarding for Early Education and Childcare Providers - Level 3

First Aider, Food Hygiene

Hi my name is Wendy, I’m married with two children, both of whom have attended Robins.  I started working at Robins ten years ago when my daughter was in her last year - it’s always been a great fun place to work!  In my spare time I enjoy nights out, walking my dogs in the forest, looking after and riding my ponies.

"I love watching the children have fun, learn and grow in confidence.  I particularly enjoy and get great satisfaction from helping the younger children settle in the early days."

Elaine Hewitt

Nursery Assistant

Hi, my name is Elaine. I live in Bransgore with my husband and three children. My passion for working with children started when my own children were in nursery school and I volunteered as a 'helping mummy". I absolutely loved it and have never looked back. For the past 9 years I have been working with young children with additional needs in Ashley. In my spare time I enjoy walking in the forest and cycling. 

"I absolutely love working with children. It's so rewarding and it's a privilege to be part of their amazing learning adventure and to watch them as they develop and grow in confidence"

... and the Committee

Jane Follett


Hi, I'm Jane. I live in Sway with my husband and two children, both now at St Luke's School. I am an HR Professional with over 10 years experience and use my skills and knowledge to support the Robin's team.

I am very proud to be part of the Robin Nursery Committee as it's given my daughter the best start in preparing her for 'big school'. Robins has such a nurturing and caring approach to children's learning and the team continue to be its biggest asset.

Becci Symons


Hi, I’m Becci - I live in the village with my husband and 3 children.  I have been a part of the Robin Nursery School Committee since I volunteered to help in 2006 when my eldest son joined the nursery!  I am still a member of the committee and I am now employed part time by the nursery as the administrator, helping to support Teresa and the committee.  My three children (who have all now moved on from Robins) keep me busy and I also work part time as a teacher in a local Junior School.

Heather McIntosh


Hi, I'm Heather. I am mum to three small children, one of whom currently attends Robin Nursery. We live in Sway and my two eldest go to St Lukes, just around the corner from Robins. I really enjoy being part of the committee and Robin Nursery as a whole - it is such a lovely, warm and friendly setting. 

Jennie Barnes

Committee Member

Hi, I'm Jennie. I recently moved into the village of Sway with my husband and 2 small children. My oldest attends Robin Nursery and has settled in so well into the friendly, relaxed environment, that my youngest is desperate to go too.

Aimée England

Committee Member

Hi, I'm Aimée. I have two young children, both of whom have attended Robin Nursery. I love being a part of the nursery and helping it to be the safe, happy and supportive environment my children know and love. I am a part-time teacher. The village of Sway has such a lovely community feel and Robin Nursery is a huge part of that.
