Claire

EARLY YEARS MANAGER

 

Hello I'm Claire. I have worked in childcare since leaving college, and joined Longparish Little School in 2001. I have seen the playgroup develop from a small Portakabin to the beautiful building we have today. I have NVQ level 4 in Children’s Care, Learning and Development and level 3 award in Management. I am the setting’s Child Protection Officer. 

I think the ideal pre-school environment for children is somewhere children feel comfortable to play, have fun and explore. That way they learn with staff supporting them when needed to extend their knowledge.

Kristy

DEPUTY MANAGER

Hello I'm Kristy. I have worked at Little School since 2005. I have an BA (hons) Childhood Study, NVQ Level 3 Speech & Language, and have also studied child psychology. I am also the SEN coordinator.

I think: The ideal pre-school environment for children is somewhere children can explore in a safe environment, experience new things, develop their senses, have fun whilst learning and taking moderate risks.

Sharron

KEY WORKER

 

Hello I'm Sharron. I started working at Little School in September 2010 and thoroughly enjoy it. I have NVQ level 3 in childcare and education.

I think: The ideal pre-school environment for children is somewhere children get a chance to experience lots of different age appropriate resources to meet their needs and interests. I believe a safe outdoor area is really important. But the priority is patient and caring staff.

BUSINESS MANAGER

Hi, my name is Sally, and I am the Business Manager for Little School.  I handle all the admin to do with admissions, invoicing, and grant funding, and I am the person to contact if you have any admin queries or want to change your child's schedule.  I look after the Little School accounts, and manage the staff payroll as well.

I have worked for Little School since 2016, but I am rarely in Little School as I work from home most of the time.  My own children (now teenagers) attended Little School and LOVED it!  They had the best start at Little School thanks to Claire and the wonderful staff who work here.
