Meet the Team

Rebecca Bourne

I have been the manager at Tassel Road Day Nursery since it opened in 2012. I started in childcare in 1988 after gaining my NNEB and originally worked as a Nursery Practitioner at Cherry Trees School before going onto senior positions in nurseries in Thetford and Norwich. I returned to work in Bury St Edmunds in 1997 at Mount Farm Day Nursery where I was employed as Deputy Manager becoming Nursery Manager in 2004. The team then changed premises to Tassel Road in 2005. I updated my childcare qualification in 2008 to a Level 4 in Childcare and Education.
I enjoy many aspects of childcare; my favourite part of the week is taking the preschool children swimming and enjoy spending time with them at lunch time. Seeing them progress from babies to preschool is fantastic.
I take pride in the fact that a number of the original team are still here and that we continue to welcome new families through our door by recommendation via previous and existing parents.


Louise Rayson

I have worked at Tassel Road Nursery since 2005. 
I started working with children in 1999 as a modern apprentice and gained my level 2 in Childcare and Education and then went on to complete my Level 3 in Childcare in 2001. I started working with preschool aged children and moved into a deputy manager role in 2003.
In 2008, I qualified as a Level 4 practitioner, gaining my qualification through the Open University. I am also a qualified Accredited SENCO completing my training in 2008. This role involves supporting children who require additional support within the nursery. I am mainly based in the nursery office and support Rebecca with the day to day running of the nursery. I enjoy spending time in all areas of the nursery, especially with the babies. I am passionate about supporting children with SEND and ensuring they can thrive to the best of their abilities. I have two children of my own.
