I work with Kim Brett, we are both mature ladies who have raised our own families. I have worked within a nursery setting for several years and have an extensive knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage. As a setting we have just been awarded ‘Accreditation Status’, we are also ‘Champions of Children’. We also hold a certificate for Special Educational Needs, and many more. We both hold full, clean driving licences. We aim to provide a warm relaxed home environment for all children within our care, to help build self esteem and independence. We try to help all of the children in our care to develop a greater knowledge and understanding of the world around them. We offer a daily routine and trips out. Our last Ofsted inspection was in October 2008 and were assessed as ‘Good’, copies of the report are available upon request. Our aim is to offer learning through play and fun.
