pre - school
We have two preschool rooms, Honeysuckle and Buttercup but the children free flow between the two. The children start pre-school after they are three years old.
Edyta is the room supervisor in the Bluebell room. She has been with us since October 2020.
Edyta has lived and worked in Britain since moving from her home country of Poland in 2005. But she is still relatively new to the Portsmouth area. Edyta is Level 3 qualified in childcare although before coming to England she gained her degree in Polish Literature and Language with Education.
We love it when we have Bi-lingual practitioners who can bring a wealth of different experiences to the nursery.
Cheryl is one of our nursery practitioners who juggles work with parenthood so works term time only. She has been with us since February 2017 but has worked in childcare for 15 years.
Cheryl is Level 3 qualified and has worked mainly with our over 2's but also has a lovely touch with our youngest children in Primrose.
Rubee is our newest nursery practitioner in Pre-school. She started with us in June in our Bluebell room but we soon saw that her talents really lay with the pre-school age group.
Rubee started her career in a pre-school setting 6 years ago where she began as an apprentice and worked her way through her level 2 and level 3 qualifications.
Tamsin started her career in childcare with us as a Level 2 apprentice. She is currently one of our Nursery Assistants but is working towards her Level 3 Qualification.
Tamsin clearly enjoys working with children across all the age ranges so we hope that she successfully completes her level 3 qualification with us.
Sharon started with us in January 2020 so had an unusual first couple of years with the global pandemic. But she has worked in childcare since 2007.
She holds a level 3 qualification in childcare. She is a really keen learner and is always researching new approaches to teaching and learning in the Early Years which she shares with the team and the children really benefit from.
Our pre school provides an ideal learning environment for the children to explore and learn. We share the outdoor space with the School Reception children which helps children to make a smooth transition to the school.
