Meet the team

Sara Jaber

Nursery Manager

Hello my name is Sara and I am delighted to welcome you to Busy Bees at Rothamsted Lodge.

I am the Nursery Manager and joined the company for a second time in September 2019.

I previously worked at Rothamsted Lodge 12 years ago as the Assistant Manager for two years before branching off into family support and social work.

After having my two children I found early years was something I missed terribly and decided it was the right time to get back into Nursery life.

I am passionate about offering children the best start to their learning journey and hold a key interest in outdoor play and parents as partners.

I look forward to meeting you all over the coming months and welcome any suggestions or feedback.
