Ruth is a warm, caring and nurturing Teaching Assistant who is extremely sensitive and empathetic to the needs of all of the nursery children. When involved in working with children of such a young age, “above and beyond” and “going the extra mile” are phrases which sum up the hard working and dedicated person that Ruth is. 

Ruth keeps abreast of new initiatives and training within preschool to help provide excellent support to nursery staff. From baking scones, planting seeds or playing toy guitars with the children, Ruth is highly committed to her profession and helps to ensure pupils achieve their very best in all areas of the preschool curriculum.
