Jennifer Alliston McLean

Parent Governor

Hi I am Jennifer a one of the parent governors. My son Benjamin came to Selly Oak Nursery 2014 and now my daughter Clara is in orange group. As a “rising 3” we hope she will be doing two years with the Nursery. Two very different children (despite their similar looks.)

I volunteered to be a governor because I wanted to contribute to Selly Oak Nursery School’s continued success. Having had the Selly Oak team, help me to raise my first child during his time with them. Benjamin seamed to struggle initially as we did as parents to ‘trust’ the new environment, the nursery’s ideas about how to care for our child, just as our own ideas were developing. Well the Team most defiantly prepared him for his first day at “big school.” When he walked into his class without a back award glance we could not have asked for more!

I hope my personal experience of the nursery and my professional interests, experience, skills and knowledge as a social worker (with experience in both adult and children’s services) will be beneficial. In turn I hope to build on my understanding of the community my children and I live. How it functions and what it needs to continue to grow. With the busy life’s we all lead these days I Like to work as hard on nurturing myself, my family as much as possible.  Running, getting outdoors either for walks or weekend camping, having time to stop and relax more importantly making time to laugh are essential.
