Nursery Staff


Mrs Beauchamp

Nursery Leader

My name is Katy and I have been in early years education for over 25 years.  I qualified in 1996, but have regularly attended relevant courses to keep me up to date with current early years practice.  

We moved on to the school site in September 2019, and I’ve loved the positive changes this has brought. I can now watch the children progress from Nursery all the way to year six. I even teach children of children that I used to teach over 20 years ago!  Oakhill Church School is a great place to send your children, my own three grown up sons were all very happy here. 

In my spare time I like to cook, walk my dogs and look after my grandson

Mrs Garbutt

Early Years Lead Practitioner

My name is Kerry and I have previously worked within the pharmaceutical industry for seven years before relocating from Hertfordshire to Somerset.  After having my son and daughter I returned to education at Ashwick and Oakhill Playgroup where I worked for four years.  In September 2019 the playgroup integrated with Oakhill Church School to become Oakhill Church School and Nursery. 

At home I enjoy spending time with my family and walking our dog in the wood.  I love to read both fictional and non-fiction books and journals, with an interest in child development and psychology.  I continue to enjoy learning. 

Miss Gass

Early Years Practitioner

Hello! My name is Nicola, however I am mostly known as Nic. I have always loved working with children after studying Level 3 Childcare and completing the course in 2012. I have recently started working at Oakhill Church School and Nursery in September 2019. You may see me around in school too, as I work in there two days a week. 

 I truly love the Early Years for the freedom it gives you to be creative and give children the quality early experiences they need to learn and develop as individuals. There is nothing more rewarding than watching a child grow, develop and thrive. 

Mrs Schuster

Early Years Assistant

Hi my name is Sarah and I have been working in early years for the past 16 years at Ashwick and Oakhill Playgroup, before moving into Oakhill Church School Nursery in September 2019. Since then we have developed and thrived into a happy and nurturing place to learn and feel that this is constantly improving and moving forward. I am married with 3 children; two girls and one boy and 2 years ago we were blessed with a beautiful Grandson whom I absolutely adore and care for 2 days a week. I love the outside and enjoy all aspects of gardening and the natural world. I also love to ride horses and walk my dogs.
