Nursery  Lead


Lead 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.

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.


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 have 2 beautiful grandchildren whom I absolutely adore. I love the outside and enjoy all aspects of gardening and the natural world. I also love to ride horses and walk my dogs.


Early Years Assistant

Hi my name is Becky and I have loved working in early years since I left college,  I had a break to start my own family and returned to work when all 4 of my children went to school, as a lunch time supervisor. I was thrilled to be offered an opportunity to work at Roots Nursery, doing what I love most, being back in early years.  Roots Nursery is a fantastic place to work with a lovely family feel. The children and their families are all wonderful. I love to be creative; arts and crafts are my favourite.
