Read about Sue’s experience of working with us:

“I recently became part of the Little Jannah family as Deputy Manager- Maternity Cover and my experience of recruitment was very smooth and friendly from the initial phone call. The management team strive to provide a well-balanced friendly supportive team to care for the children.

The nursery has recently relocated and the setting is small and has a homely atmosphere which is unique. Staff are passionate about childcare and this is reflected in their everyday practice and rapport they all have with the families who use Little Jannah Nursery Working in a small family nursery is really nice and being made to feel so welcome and valued is rewarding and makes every day enjoyable with everyone at Little Jannah. Ideas and suggestions are valued from everyone and encouraged by the management team who are always responsive to this.

All children have their individual developmental needs cared for and each child has a keyworker who will work closely with parents to support their child and any concerns are addressed and discussed.

I really enjoy working with the Little Jannah family and every day is a new day with lots of fun and laughter”.
