I have been working in early years for many years, mostly in nursery settings

I have 5 years experience of managing different nurseries and as a parent. I lead the settings to a standard I would happily leave my own child in.

If you have any concerns please do get in touch asap

I have been delighted with the care and attention Amy has given my daughter at her previous day care role.   This was my first experience of leaving my child and I was a little nervous about what to expect.

The reassurance I received was great.  I will really be able to get on with my work without any stress and my daughter loves the thought of going in to see the team .
