Dovedale Management Update – December 2020

Dear Parents and carers of Dovedale Kids’ Club,

It is with mixed emotions that we are announcing that our friend and colleague Jeannette Davies, the Site Manager of Dovedale Kids’ Club is retiring at the end of term.

Jeannette has been the Site Manager at Dovedale for the past 10 years and first started working for the company in 2004.

Jeannette has decided to retire to be able to spend more time with her family.

From January, Sarah Barnard will become the Site Manager and Sonya Ahmed will become the Breakfast Club Manager. They will be supported by Debbie Tambourini as the Junior After School Club Manager.

Sonya has been working for Kids’ Club since 2018 and Sarah has been with us since 1999!

We would like to thank Jeannette for her years of hard work and dedication to the hundreds of children she has looked after over the years. We will miss her so much!

Jeannette wanted to share a message with you all:

Dear Parents,

You will have heard by now that I am retiring from Dovedale Out of Hours Kids’ Club at the end of this term. I have had a long career in childcare culminating in ten very happy years at Dovedale.

I will be very sad to leave Dovedale and Kids’ Club and I know I will miss seeing the children, staff and parents who have made my job at Kids’ Club so rewarding.

Many of you will know that I have two daughters who live in Wales and Holland and I am planning longer visits to them and their families. I have four grandchildren and a great grandson. School pick-ups will be something that I can do as a grandmother! I also enjoy walking, so I plan to continue this during my retirement.

I will be keeping in touch with Sarah and the rest of the staff team and look forward to hearing how our Dovedale family is.

Best wishes to you all.
