The Pre-school staff team are caring, enthusiastic, imaginative and work to a high standard to follow the curriculum. Our Childcare Operations Manager and all of our other Early Years Educator staff members hold an NVQ 3 qualification along with valid first aid, child protection and food hygiene certificates.
At Claydon Pre-school we operate a keyperson system. Each child is allocated a keyperson when they join us. The keyperson is responsible for keeping up to date developmental records for each child via Tapestry. These records cover all areas of development through the initial phases of the Early Years Foundation Stage which carries children through to the end of Reception (foundation). By keeping them updated through observations we will be able to see how each child progresses during their time with us. Parents will be given a user name and password so they can see their child’s Tapestry at any time.
Hi, I’m Lisa. I have been at the Pre-school since October 2011. Previous to this I had lots of experience in administration work through a Government Department.

Hi. My name is Emma. I have a Level 3 Early Educator qualification, as well as a Degree in Early Childhood Studies with Psychology.
