Manager – Jo Vogel

NVQ Level 3 in Childcare Learning & Development

Jo has been managing the nursery in Stanmore for a number of years.

She says “I have been working in childcare for the past 20 years and continue to feel passionate and enthusiastic about my role. 

At Little Bicks in Stanmore we provide a wonderfully fun and caring environment for pre-schoolers.

Not only is the nursery the starting point of formal Jewish education but we endeavour to inspire the confidence and social skills that are vital for the children when they move on to “big” school.”
