NVQ 3, Food hygiene, Paediatric First Aid and Designated Safeguarding Lead.
I started in childcare when I first joined Inglenook in 2000.
When not working I enjoy going for walks, going out for nice meals and spending time with my family, and having 6 grandchildren they keep me very busy.
Why childcare – I enjoy helping children and guiding them as they explore, play and learn, seeing them grow and progress.
I have been in childcare since 1998 and at Inglenook since 2000.
I am based in the Baby room and love seeing the little ones grow and learn though play, engaging with others, trying new activities and gaining confidence and independence.
Outside of work I watch my son play football and love meeting with friends and family.
NVQ Level 3 in Childcare
I started in childcare in 2009 and joined Inglenook in August 2014. I work primarily in the Baby room and love the thought that I am helping give the children a helping hand in their first and valuable journey in life, watching as their social skills develop and they grow their own individual personalities. Outside of work life, I mainly spend time with my own family but do enjoy the gym, walking and swimming, and when allowed love travelling and exploring.

Ruth Lowe - Owner
I have always had a passion and love for children and I recall stating and thinking many times, while our daughter was at her Nursery, about improvements that could be made both on the customer service and care side. This combined with my wanting to be my own boss and be able to provide a quality service were the catalysts for our looking at and choosing to purchase Mereside Farm Children`s Nursery and then Inglnook nursery. I hold a paediatric first aid certificate, have a level 2 in Food Safety and a level 3 NVQ Diploma in childcare. When I have free time, I love spending time with my family and friends, I play the saxophone and clarinet and also sing in a big band which is something my Dad got me into many years ago, like going to the theatre, adore meals out and finally to try and keep fit and challenge myself I enjoy running, and have completed many half marathons and will be applying for the London Marathon for the last time in 2019, having not been allocated a space for 2013 to 2018.
