Roosha Sue, or Miss Roosha as many Clapham families know her, is at the heart of Eaton House the Manor nursery.
She has been at Eaton House the Manor since 2001. She started in year one then worked in the KG and was then appointed Head of Nursery in 2003. Although she has been head for a number of years, every single day is different and most of all rewarding. There are also many long-standing staff and together we see whole families come through our doors. To be able to continue to watch them grow throughout the school is a very unique and privileged position to be in. Miss Roosha loves to go and watch the older children in their KG Nativity or listen to the choir sing in the church or judge a house competition.
Miss Roosha’s original training was as a Montessori teacher, but as the early years has developed and the curriculum has become more in depth she has updated her qualifications to move with the times. With an early years degree and qualified teacher status, teaching is purposeful and reflected upon daily. She actively encourages and supports the staff to continue their professional development. We not only hold training on site but make the most of colleges and universities nearby, as well as Wandsworth Early Years training hub.
Eaton House The Manor has always been a wonderful place to be and the nursery is where it all begins. Tours are given to each family and we explain our settling in process which involves an arts and craft session once a week. The new intake meets their teacher and other friends who will be in the same class. The children explore the nursery environment with the comfort of knowing Mum, Dad or carer is close by. The children have a snack and a short mat time of a story and songs. We find this makes transition a lot smoother when the first day of nursery comes around.
