When I was asked to take over leadership of the Baby Room at Edenhurst Nursery, I jumped at the chance. It was my role at my previous nursery and an age group I love to work with. I have worked with children from the ages of 3 months to 11 years and have been a qualified Nursery Nurse since 2008. Ellie, my predecessor, had done a fantastic job in developing an environment babies can thrive in and, along with my new teammates, should be applauded.
Opportunities like this often give us the chance to make a few changes in the environment around us and that is exactly what we have done. Over a couple of weekends in March we redecorated the baby room. We repainted all the walls in the main room and added some additional storage to refresh the space around us.
Over time I want to develop our ‘home away from home’ feeling in which all our babies can feel totally comfortable as they start on their educational journey with us. We will also continue embracing our commitment to the planet by re-purposing everyday items to play and learn with whilst decreasing our reliance on plastic toys.
Personally, I am involved with a theatre company that puts on 3 shows a year at a local theatre. I sometimes perform in these shows but recently I have been helping behind the scenes doing the lighting and sound. Within this theatre group I run a drama group for children that are on the autistic spectrum one day a week. I have been running this group for 4 years. When I was 11, I joined St John Ambulance and started to learn first aid and went on to teach the younger children aged between 5-8. I finished teaching first aid about 2 years ago.
Whilst the circumstances we are currently in make it difficult, I look forward to easier times ahead where I can get to know all of our babies parents better and share in their progress with you.Categories: Nursery School Blogs
