Are you looking for a nursery school in Wimbledon that can offer your child a safe, nurturing, home from home environment?
My name is Siobhan Drewett and I am the Acting Manager of Playdays Nursery School Wimbledon, located on Queens Road. The current manager – Charline Baker is currently on maternity leave and will be returning in the new year.
I have almost seven years professional childcare experience which has all been with Playdays. I am NVQ Level 3 trained and currently working towards my NVQ Level 5, in both childcare and management.
Originally, I started in Playdays as a Nursery Nurse in a Toddler room in the Wimbledon Hill branch. I then got promoted to Head of Room for the 2-3 year olds before aquiring Head of Room for the Pre-school age group. In 2014, I became Deputy Manager where my responsibilities widened as i assisted the manager with the day to day running of the nursery. I am now transferring to the Queens Road branch to cover the position of “Acting Manager” during her maternity leave. This is a fantastic opportunity for me to develop my career all within the same company I started in.
I have always had a passion for childcare and knew I wanted a career in this industry. As well as working in childcare, I also volunteer and run a local rainbow and brownie pack alongside my sister. I take a very hands on approach to childcare and find their development fascinating. I also believe that it is important to maintain a good relationship with the parents as you are their primary educator. By doing this, i truly believe the children can reach their full potential.
My setting is located within the heart of Wimbledon centre, and despite this we are very fortunate to have a huge outdoor garden. This allows my staff to extend the classroom play opportunities for the children outside which is an added bonus to our daily routine. There are also local parks and libraries which allow the children to explore the environment and go on various outings.
The nursery is set out over the entire ground floor, so there is no worry of tackling any stairs with little ones. Prospective parents often comment on how ‘homely’ the nursery feels. The classrooms are all really spacious and bright, divided into three children based rooms all of which are interlinked, thus allowing the transitions between rooms to be so much easier. This allows me to create a home from home feeling and makes settling for a new child a lot less daunting.
Both my staff and I aim to continue to create a positive environment which helps the children to feel happy, safe and secure. This will provide the children with better opportunities to strive for a better education and to become independent learners. We work in partnership with all parents, which in turn helps us to care for their child and support them throughout their journey with Playdays!
