Meet the team

Jumping Jacks Childcare, Bedford, has a dynamic team of staff who bring enthusiasm, passion, and dedication to the nursery every day.

Our whole team is competent, confident and committed to the children in our care – keeping them happy, safe and healthy, encouraging them to grow with confidence and independence and celebrating their individual achievements.

Founder Sarah Tamburrini has over 25 years experience in nursery management. NNEB-qualified, she managed her first nursery at 22, and is an NVQ assessor in childcare as well as a nursery consultant.

She set up Jumping Jacks Childcare, Bedford, over 20 years ago at her home in the town and in 2005 expanded her growing and successful business with the opening of the Spenser Road nursery.

The nursery is run and managed by Sarah herself and deputy manager Lisa Hack. They lead a team of trained nursery nurses and nursery assistants, who are all qualified in childcare, early years care or learning and development, and include mums and grandmothers.
