The Team

Message from our Manager – Hazel Jones.

I began my childcare journey in 1985, studying at Mid Warwickshire College. In over 30 years within this sector I have worked as a private nanny, nursery nurse, room leader and a manager at another setting. In 2009 I took the role as Manager at this setting.

I believe strongly in investing in staff by keeping them up to date with new Early Years approaches, providing valuable training and allowing them to express their thoughts and ideas to expand the childs learning. The bond between a child and his/her key worker is often the first relationship a child has outside of the family unit. I’m proud that we work on what we believe is right for every child, which is all children develop and learn through play at their own rate, in a welcoming, secure setting.All the staff – office based or room based – work lovingly and closely with the children and look at ways to ignite their confidence, creativity, learning and understanding of the world around them.
