TGS staff fund (and hair!) raising efforts for charity
Four members of staff in our nursery team took part in a skydive in September 2016 to raise money for Child Poverty Action Group and Cancer Research UK. Our extremely brave TGS Free Fallers included Renja Salonen (Admissions), Claire Badejo (Accounts), Laura Gethin (Head of Room in Les Nounours) and Jacqui Tsang (Head of Nursery). Please see the news article in the Islington Gazette here and if you would like to donate for either of the very worthy causes, please visit the teams Just Giving page.
The Tatler Nurseries Guide 2016
The Gower School is proud to be recognised as one of Britain’s best nurseries by Tatler magazine in the June 2016 issue. This certainly is a testament to the hard work of all our staff and to our parents for making the nursery such a wonderful place for the children to grow and flourish. We are the only nursery in Islington to be included in the guide, and the only accredited Montessori nursery in London. You can view the feature on their website here.
