Meet the Team

Jane Gordon

I have been at Talbot woods since 2011, where my journey started as a Nursery Nurse then to Room leader; I then progressed in to the Deputy Manager's position which I was in post for nearly four years. I have just recently been appointed as Manager, feeling privileged and excited to continue to embed the high quality care and education that we currently provide to enable us as a team to maintain our Ofsted Outstanding rating. 

Since gaining my Level 3 qualification in childcare and education in 2005, I have gained experience and knowledge with all age groups, abilities, disabilities and various cultures through my childcare carer in Africa. I also hold a level 3 Forest school qualification where I have been able to implement Forest school sessions at Talbot Woods.

During my time with Bright Horizons I have been given the opportunity to support other nurseries when needed, where I have shared my knowledge and expertise from all my exposure to previous experiences.

Hi I am Caz, a part time Deputy Manager at Talbot Woods. I have worked at Talbot Woods for 4 years now and completed my Foundation degree in 2014. I’ve worked in Child Care for 14 years and I am due to come back from maternity leave after having my second child in March.  

I feel extremely grateful to be able to work part time in my role for such a supportive and inspirational company, and to work as part of an outstanding team of people.
