Meet Our Staff

After our passion, what is the next most important thing you should know about us?

That’s easy: our incredible staff! Pure and simple. They are the heart of our family and what makes us unique. Our inspiring and passionate staff are the reason we hold the coveted ‘Top 20 Nursery Group 2018’ award and, year after year, are recognised in the prestigious NMT Nursery Awards.

Dedicated to being the best that a family could ask for, our nursery staff are constantly developing themselves through our training programme run by childcare and EYFS experts. It is not just our little ones who are the passionate lifelong learners here at Kindred!

Alex Jones
Senior Nursery Manager

I have been in childcare for over 15 years in a variety of settings including schools, a Children’s Centre and nurseries. I managed a local Pre-School for 4 years and really enjoy the day to day interactions with families. I hold a degree in Sports Development and Education Studies, a Level 3 in Childcare and an Early Years Professional Status. In my time at a local Children’s Centre, I was part of a team that were given a national award for our ‘Communication Friendly Spaces’. A few of my ideas were also pictured and published in books by Elizabeth Jarman.

Jan Rose
Operations Manager

I joined the team here in Bournemouth back in 2010 as the Nursery Operations/Finance Manager after 23 years at Marks and Spencer. For 10 of those years I was a Section Manager holding a PLH, a certified DPS HACCP, a Fire Marshall and gained a background in finance and compliance.

I’ve ben married almost 40 years now, have 2 married daughters and 4 fabulous grandchildren - who are our world!

Training courses within childcare have further extended new and necessary knowledge within this sector, and it has taught me “you’re never too old to learn and every day is a school day”!

Lorraine White
Deputy Manager

I completed my Diploma in Nursery Nursing in 1996 and started my journey in childcare in 1998. I have worked here at Kindred Bournemouth since February 2010 and have loved every minute!
