Our Management Team
Passionate, dedicated, and loving, all Abacus Nursery practitioners love their work and it shows in everything they do. Our goal is to make a positive difference to all of the children who come to our Nursery.
As our Director, Ruth West is committed to helping children explore and learn in a hands-on environment. She has many years experience, is passionate in supporting her team and has owned the nursery since 2001. The excellent reputation of Abacus Nursery grew during the early days whilst being run from a purpose-built extension in her own home. The nursery expanded when she moved into the Cheddon Road premises.
Possessing enthusiasm, Claire Kevan has a nurturing personality and with Ruth supports the team of nursery practitioners at Abacus to ensure all of the children are given a high-quality childcare experience. Claire has worked with children for nearly thirty years and brings a huge amount of experience to the team. She is a dedicated Safeguarding lead and is also the Special Educational Needs and Disability Deputy at Abacus.
With a warm personality and hands-on approach towards learning, we are thrilled to have Emma as our Deputy and Toddler/Pre-school room supervisor.
Emma is committed to helping children and babies explore and develop in a nurturing environment. She has been with Abacus for 15 years and has always been an inspirational member of the team.
