I have worked in Early Years for over 8 years, what started as a job to fit around my two daughters soon grew into a passion for providing care and education. I’m very proud that I have progressed from an apprentice to Manager and feel very lucky to spend every day doing a job I love. Our setting offers a family feel, with many of the staff’s children having attended at one point and many families returning to us over the years with younger siblings. We have close ties to the community, often going for walks to feed the ducks, wellie walks to the local woods and performing our Nativity in St Mary’s Church, which is situated opposite our building. We have a large hall that gives us room to offer many activities to help the children explore and learn, an enclosed garden (that we use no matter what the weather) and our very own mud kitchen.
