Meet the Management Team

My name is Rebecca Clevett and I am the Managing Director and Chairman. I work across both Archfield House Nursery and Woodland House Nursery on variable days. I have a Bed (Hons) in Early Years Education, EYPS (Early Years Professional Status) and also a Level 3 in Nursery Management.

My main role is to oversee the running and productivity of both nurseries.

My mother started Archfield House Nursery in 1986. As a teenager, we lived above the nursery! I went to university in Brighton and then taught there for 10 years. After having my son, I returned to Bristol to take over the nursery. Since then, I have expanded Archfield House and set up Woodland House Nursery in Clifton.

My husband Steve is in charge of maintenance across both nurseries. My favourite part of the job is hearing the wonderful sound of laughter from all the happy children and staff!

My name is Anne Scott. I am one of the Nursery Managers at Archfield House Nursery. I have worked at Archfield for nearly 20 years. I have an NNEB (Level 3 qualification) and I am also an Advanced Baby Practitioner.

I am responsible for the occupancy of the nursery which is a constant juggling act! I also supervise the food provision throughout the nursery alongside our nursery chef. I work Monday, Thursday and Friday – 8-6pm.

I started working at Archfield House in 1996 in the Baby Room and have worked my way up through the nursery. I became Nursery Manager as part of a job share in 2010.

I have a daughter called Jessica who attended Archfield House from age of 5 months until she went to school.

The favourite part of my job is escaping from the nursery office to have cuddles with the babies!

My name is Hannah Richardson.  I joined the Archfield House family in 2015 and I have worked across the nursery

throughout my time here, including Key Person, Beehive Room Manager, Squirrel Room Manager, Nursery Teacher and Wise Owl Room Leader (at Woodlands). I  completed my EYITT (Early Years Initial Teacher Training) in 2019. I work 4 days a week.

I am passionate about Communication and Language, especially in relation to bi-lingualism and how children’s language impacts behaviour and emotional wellbeing. I believe I am an advocate for outdoor learning and I have a strong interest in the role of education in relation to climate change and understanding environmental impact.

My role includes maintaining open communication, safety and high wellbeing for all staff, children and families. I oversee the induction and training programme for staff members as well as being the main port of call for our curriculum and learning opportunities for the children.

My name is Cassie Holland and I am one of the Managers here at Archfield and I work 2 days a week.

I have a BA Hons in Early Years Education and have been working in Early Years since 2010. I also have a Level 3 qualification in Beach School Management. I have worked at Archfield on and off since 2011. I am also a Local Specialist Leader for Birth-3 year olds with Bristol Early Years Teaching Hub and an Expert with the Department for Education Covid-19 Early Years recovery programme.

My main role as a Manager is ensuring we are giving our children, families and staff the icing on the cake to make their nursery experience the best it possibly can be! I am passionate about relationship led practice, outdoor learning and high engagement with our local community (especially Beach School!).

My favourite things to do outside of nursery are travelling, eating in new places and learning new cooking skills!

My name is Emma Base, I am the Manager at Woodland House (our sister nursery) and one of the Managers at Archfield. I have been at Woodlands since the very beginning in 2009, it has been fantastic seeing it grow over time! I have a Level 3 in Early Years Education and I am one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads.

I work between Woodlands and Archfield and my main role is ensuring the high levels of wellbeing in our children, families and staff. The majority of my day is in the rooms with the children! I love setting up the environments to provide amazing learning opportunities for the children, especially the garden at Archfield.

Outside of nursery I love to socialise with friends, always dancing!
