Bridget is the setting’s managing supervisor and safeguarding lead. She is in the setting from Tuesday to Thursday. Bridget has a Bachelor of Education with Honours and is also one of the last students to be awarded Early Years Professional status.
Donna is the setting’s Deputy Managing Supervisor and the SENCo lead. She works Monday to Wednesday, supervising sessions on Mondays and Tuesday afternoons. She is the person to go to for advice on play activities and for younger and less able children.
Sarah is the Lead person for our Out of Hours provision and for walking bus to and from our local Primary School. She is one of our “comforters,” especially when children do not want their mum to go. Sarah is a very popular member of staff and will often be seen with a fan group following her around the setting. Sarah is known to the children and either “Sarah with the long hair,” “big Sarah” (she is the tallest!) or “Sarah Mann.”
Vicky is another member of our staff who started as a volunteer and then became a part of our team as a fully paid up member. Vicky is returning to childcare after having her own children. She works as a member of the lunch club team and in sessions. Vicky has a calming influence on children who are upset and will often be found in the book corner reading to a captivated audience of children.
Ali is responsible for all the lovely displays in the setting; she is very artistic and is the one who can coax even the most timid of children to explore their creative side. Ali works in our out of hours provision and also in our daytime sessions. Ali is totally unfazed by preparing food for a dozen or more children in our Out of Hours provision and dishing it up so that they can all eat together.
