The Management Team

My name is Janine Wood and I am the Nursery Manager at Bright Comets Day Nursery.

I have 10 years of childcare experience working with all age groups in both a large chain of nurseries as well as an independent nursery and at the beginning of my career I was a private nanny.

I have a Foundation Degree in Early Years and completed this with a Distinction grade. Amongst this qualification I have attended other professional training such as, Pediatric First Aid, Behavior Management, Designated Person for Safeguarding Children, Prevent Duty, Fire Awareness and have also completed the full accredited Special Educational Need Coordinator training.

My aim for this nursery is to ensure your children’s safety and welfare at all times, ensuring a warm and welcoming environment whereby a rich variety of stimulating learning opportunities are provided, allowing them to become resilient and enabling them to reach their full potential. I will also ensure an enthusiastic, highly trained, caring and well managed staff team are there to scaffold your child’s development and form the foundations for their future learning and will use my passion for Special Educational Needs to ensure that all children fulfil their potential, making certain that no child is disadvantaged because of their individual needs and abilities.

I further wish to maintain our good standards and hope to increase our current Ofsted rating to an Outstanding upon our next inspection. I aim to do this through continuing to implement high quality staff practices that ensure your child is safe, secure, happy and stimulated.

My name is Lorraine and I am the Deputy Manager at Bright Comets Day Nursery.

I have over 12 years childcare experience working in a variety of settings from independent nurseries, after-school clubs and large chain settings. 

I have gained many qualifications as well as having such a wide range of experiences throughout the years. Whilst I am continually researching and keeping up to date with current legislation I have attended several training courses such as, EYFS, Safeguarding, First Aid, Early Support and Prevent Duty.

My passion for Bright Comets is to maintain excellent standards and support Janine and the team in achieving an Outstanding Ofsted inspection. 

I hope to continually provide and implement strategies to support all children in their learning and provide a safe and stimulated environment for all to achieve and learn. 

Having worked in a variety of settings I wish to build relationships within the community and work in close partnership with other settings ensuring the practice we provide is off high quality and gives every child the opportunity to flourish into independent learners ready for the transition to school life.
