Professionalism of our staff enables parents to feel confident about their ability to provide the best possible care and education for the children entrusted into their care
I have been working in childcare since 1991 and have worked in a variety of settings. I have lived in the village for 10 years and 3 young and very active sons, a husband and a dog who keep me very busy when I am not a t work. I have been the manager at the Pre-School for 2 ½ years and the best bits about my job are working with a wonderful staff team, working closely with parents to help their children progress and be ready for school and of course spend time with the children (who make us laugh a lot!), seeing them develop and mature ready for the next stage in their lives – school.
