Laura - Manager
Hello, I'm Laura, I have been a qualified teacher for 10 years. I specialised in Early Years and Key Stage 1 and I have taught Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. After having my own children, I decided that I would like to go back into Early Years and rediscover my love of working with young children. I have a passion for play based learning and know that children make the most progress when they are are fully engaged in following their own interests. I look forward to welcoming you to our fantastic setting!
Charlene - Assistant
Hi, my name is Charlene Braines. I am a PreSchool Assistant. I have NVQ Level 3 in Early Years Care and Education and I have worked in a variety of different settings. I like working with children because they always bring so much joy and fun to what they do. I feel proud to be part of their lives and watch them grow and develop into confident people.
I have a very supportive family. I like to relax by socialising with my family and friends, and watching my children play football.
Diane - Assistant
My name is Diane Hall. I qualified as NNEB (Level 3) in 1980.
I have worked as a Nanny, a childminder for 17 years and more recently as Bank Staff (agency) in various local Nurseries.
I believe that learning should be fun! Playing with children in a secure happy environment is key to allowing them to grow and learn.
