Teachers & Support Staff

Our outstanding early years educators build on children’s individual strengths and passions, setting a high standard for their learning and development. Each child receives a personalised approach that inspires them to become a purposeful, life-long learner. Meet some of our team here, and in no particular order – each and every member is as important as each other!

  • Our teachers and support teams distinguish themselves through their passion for working with children, commitment and diligence.
  • Our teachers are sensitive to the individual needs of each child, their cultural and family backgrounds, and their developmental stage of learning.
  • An appointed ‘key person’ looks after your child all day, every day and is responsible for meeting the needs of each child in their care and responds sensitively to their feelings, ideas and behaviour. They are responsible for keeping and updating your child’s development portfolio, planning for their individual needs and ensuring they are happy and safe.
  • All staff members have a DBS check before commencing work with us. This is then updated every three years.
  • Our staff recruitment policies ensure a thorough and rigorous vetting process to verify employment and residential history, authentication of all professional qualifications and certificates.
  • All staff undergo the Child Protection course provided by the Local Authority and selected staff specialise in Paediatric First Aid and behavioural management. All staff also attend the annual Early Years Conference held by the Local Authority.
  • Periodic reviews are in place to identify further training and improvement to promote best practice and continued outstanding education and care.

Head Office Team

SARA - Director



I have over 14 years experience working in Montessori practices at teacher and management levels. I believe that with good quality and consistent teaching methods, children are able to grow, thrive and prosper!

Razia Nurmohamed


Quality Director

Today’s children are tomorrow’s future. I strongly believe that the early years experiences form the basis of how children cope with life situations. Their communication and language and personal, social and emotional development form the basis of skills that give them an advantage for the rest of their life. I consider it a privilege to be part of a child’s formative years and to be able to help shape the future.

Nursery Management Team



Operations Lead

I have always had a passion of looking after and educating children, watching them grow and develop with their own little personalities. It’s a great sense of achievement when they go off to school and they have had the best start to life with you at nursery. Even though my role means I’m not with the children on a day to day basis anymore, I still love welcoming the children in each morning and being part of a childcare environment.



Administrative Assistant

I thoroughly enjoy supporting the team at Blossom Tree in my administrative role. The atmosphere and being around the children makes coming to work a pleasure and I love seeing the children’s happy faces.



Montessori Lead

Life is not measured by the breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away” – Maya Angelou.Working with children has given me so many of those precious moments! The things children say and do, (and) the joy and delight they feel when they achieve something they have been persevering with… As a Montessori practitioner, my role has always been that of being a role model, an observer and a facilitator – providing the appropriate environment, guidance, support and opportunities. I have had the privilege to work in Montessori settings for over 20 years and am looking forward to many more!



Deputy Manager

I have always been passionate about working with children and have over 5 years experience in Early Years. After I finished my Level 3, I wanted to continue expanding my knowledge and I am currently completing my Level 5! I feel that as I teach the children, I learn at the same time. My favourite part of working with children is when they grasp a skill or activity for the first time and I love to see the look of joy on their face. This is the reason I love what I do! Everyday is a day to learn and try something new!



Third in Charge

I believe that working with children is one of the greatest blessings we have as early years teachers! Teaching children the skills they need to go through life is one of the most amazing things to watch, spending their first years of learning in an environment that allows them to flourish is one of my biggest passions. I have a great enthusiasm towards providing an environment that allows children to use their interests to encourage them to learn, making learning fun and inspiring for both the children and the teachers. “The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn”




Head Chef

I have been a professional chef and have over 30 years experience in the catering industry. I have worked for a variety of clients, including international companies and private schools. I am fully trained in Health and Safety, Hygiene and Allergy awareness, alongside Food and Nutrition. I am also qualified in designing menus which I love as it supports the healthy growth of each of my clients. I love working and cooking for children as I feel they bring the best out of my personality. Through the preparation of their meals, it allows me to encourage them, feed their curiosity as well as nurture their growth in trying new foods.

Heads Of Classrooms

Deputy Heads Of Classrooms



Under 2s under Ladybirds Deputy Room Leader

I’m passionate about my job because when my children were young, I was a stay at home parent. When they started school I wanted to continue in childcare so started a qualification in childcare as I wanted to continue to nurture children in wellbeing, growth and development. The children receive lots of affection and the freedom to explore their surroundings and I assist them when required so they can play independently with confidence.



Caterpillars Deputy Room Leader (2-2.5 years)

I used to believe a child was a blank slate that needed to be filled. A child is not a blank slate but an accumulation of experiences and education. Being part of the growth of a child carries great responsibility and reward. To me, children are like a fountain of joy. I can never get enough of their lovely innocent personalities and truthfulness. They are so vulnerable, yet so brave, energetic and optimistic. They are so authentic and express their emotions without a sense of fear. They are open with the highest level of integrity. I just want to protect them from any harm to the best of my ability.



Bumblebees Deputy Room Leader (2.5-3 years)

I have four years’ experience teaching in a Montessori environment. I enjoy guiding the children in the direction that is best suited for them. My biggest achievement as a Montessori Directress has been to see the children progress and develop independently at their own pace and time.’



After completing my Bachelor’s degree in Law, I decided to take a different path and pursue child care as I want to inspire children and nurture their skills to give them the confidence to be the best they can be. I believe that consistency is the key to effective learning therefore, I encourage the children to follow a structure that is tailored to their needs and their skills.



From a young age, I have always known I wanted to work with children. I have been in the industry for 12 years and I have a deep passion for educating children. Shaping young people’s lives is a key attribute to their future and knowing that I can help individuals from the start of their lives, makes me so happy that I’m contributing to their development and making a difference that children will carry forever. I also enjoy communicating with parents as I am a people person. Everyone is different and every day is a new day, that’s why I love working in the early years’ environment!

I am amazed how much this nursery and the staff have had such a positive impact on my little girl. Every morning we receive a warm welcome when we come into the main reception.
The food looks great with such a varied menu, it makes me jealous! The fact that it's all organic is an added bonus, knowing I am giving my son the best.
Since our toddlers joined the nursery, we have noticed so many enjoyable differences in them, notably independence, confidence and speech and we also notice them pointing out things that we know they definitely learnt at nursery.
I love that I get a detailed update on what my child has been up to in the day through an app and that the updates include pictures which I am able to then share with the rest of my family.
My son has only been at the nursery a few weeks and already I have noticed how quickly he has developed new skills. Everything from holding his own open cup to putting together puzzles.
My daughter has become more and more confident in her home life after attending nursery.
My son has progressed so well since being there and they provide such a wide range of activities for the kids. I would always recommend this nursery to anyone and will send any future children there.
My daughter has a great relationship with the staff members and will happily jump into their arms. I'm so glad I made the right choice at Blossom Tree Montessori.
