We believe that children learn best when they feel safe, happy and comfortable. Our aim is to help children to develop a wide range of skills through play.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which sets the standard for the learning, development and care of young children – from birth to five. EYFS helps us to explore seven important learning areas with your child, whilst taking in to account their individual abilities, interests and special educational requirements.
We will keep a record of your child’s development and this will be available for you to look through at any time. If you would like to talk to us about your child’s development or areas of focus then please raise this with their key worker or give Abigail, our Childcare Manager, a call.
Abigail also manages our Hawthorn playroom, with Celine Prior who is Hawthorn’s room leader and specialises in looking after children with additional needs.
Abigail has worked in the childcare sector for over 25 years. Her experience spans a variety of roles, from nursery manager of a busy private nursery to working as an Early Years Inspector. Passionate about providing first-class childcare, Abigail is keen to ensure that children from all backgrounds have the skills they need to be ready to start school with confidence.
Married to Bill, she has three children and enjoys walking, swimming and spending time with her family.
