Hello, my name is Janey
In 1988 (yes - 30 years ago!), I started my Clocktower life as a mum on the Committee.
I was a qualified nursery nurse but had temporarily stopped working while my children were young.
One day, the then Chairman phoned me in a panic to say that the Manager had to leave suddenly and could I take over for a couple of weeks until they found a replacement... the rest as they say is history!
I am extremely proud of our team at Clocktower. We have grown and developed the business together, and in more recent years have seen the opening of Out of School Club, extended opening hours, a couple of site moves, and then in Summer 2017 we expanded our setting to accommodate the growing need for places after the government introduced 30 hours free childcare.
Every year the pre-school has been over subscribed which I think is a testimony in itself.
We have no fiercer critics than parents/carers, and the vast majority of our children come to us via 'word of mouth', so we are very confident that we must be doing a good job!
My daughter, Lara, has worked alongside me as a co-owner for a few years now, and it is wonderful to receive lots of feedback about how our setting 'is homely', and 'feels like one big family'.
Let me introduce you to everyone...
