Marianne Wade

I am Marianne Wade, mum to two young girls, the oldest of who is in Blue group this year. I was keen to join as a parent governor to gain greater insight into my children’s educational journey. Also during these difficult times it seems particularly important that communities come together and I wanted to offer any help I can give. The staff at Selly Oak Nursery School represent prime examples of dedicated professionals working to improve the lives of children and their families but instead of receiving the rewards they deserve are subject to ever greater pressures. The lawyer in me wants to help alleviate that in any way I can and hopes to be useful in so doing.

Teaching at the University gives me an insight into just how much pressure young people are and feel under. It is wonderful to gain insight into the other end of the spectrum and to support such a fabulous institution helping children develop as children. Having grown up in Norway and with my better half being German, it is quite alien to us to send children to anything approaching a School before age 7. Therefore a nursery school with a forest school and live eggs as teaching tools appeals to us. Any contribution I can make to ensuring it continues to flourish is therefore gladly given.
