The History of Greenwood School
The Story of School Founder Edward Prior
Greenwood Wandle was launched in August 2018 by Edward Prior. The school was originally named The Park Gardens Nursery which opened in 1992 at Wandle Recreation Centre.
Before launching Greenwood, Edward gained over 6 years’ experience in the early years sector where he achieved both his NVQ level 3 qualification in Childcare and level 5 qualification in Nursery Management.
Before his time in childcare Edward gained a BA honours in Business Management at Newcastle University and then a Post Graduate Degree in Broadcast Journalism at City University. Following this he spent three years in broadcasting working for BBC Breakfast.
When BBC Breakfast relocated to Salford Edward stayed in London and started to gain experience in early years with the idea of working in children’s television however as soon as he began working in a nursery environment, he realised that this was the path for him and then spent the next 6 years preparing himself to launch his own Nursery School.
