Clare Hayes

These opportunities have afforded me a great deal of insight into the importance in treating each and every child as a unique and wonderful individual.

Professional Qualifications: BA Hons Early Childhood Studies
Passions/ Hobbies: By far my biggest passion is spending time with my children, I adore watching them grow and their personalities shine. I value the importance of imaginary play and love being creative. In my quiet time I have a passion for reading and theatre.
Favourite thing about working in childcare: Watching the children develop with confidence. I also love sharing my knowledge and expertise with staff and families, knowing that in truly working together we can support children to be the very best that they can be.

Andy Hayes
Director and Owner

I have a wealth of knowledge relating to the day to day running of the nursery setting. To date, my current and previous management roles have cemented the importance of keeping staff morale high, treating all employees with the highest regard and allowing them the structure, space and support to grow and develop within their specific roles.
