Meet our wonderful team!
We are an enthusiastic, hard working team who wants every child to strive and achieve their full potential whilst having loads of fun! Staff are highly qualified and dedicated, to ensuring we offer a stimulating environment and carefully planned activities, to meet the individual needs of all children.
Staff have a wide knowledge of the EYFS which enables the provision to provide children with risk, challenge and opportunities to become explorers both indoors and outdoors.
With a large friendly staff team - all families and children are made to feel at ease. A key person system in place enables the children and families to create a bond with their key person and strong relationships are formed.
We are very excited to welcome Shelley into our room to work with us on an afternoon, Shelley will bring lots of exciting and creative activities to the room!
