Our Staff

At the Rocking Horse Day Nursery we pride ourselves with our staff retention which is vitally important.

It provides the babies and children with the continuity of care they need as a basis for development: each baby and child has their own key worker who works closely with parents/carers to establish the child’s individual needs.

Meet the team

We build positive relationships with outside professionals.

Together we can ensure that we are achieving the best outcomes for children.

The Rocking Horse Day Nursery is privately owned and managed by Julia Davies (S.R.N, R.S.C.N)
