Pirehill Nursery Manager
NVQ Level 4
Hi, my name is Claire and I am the manager of our Pre-School at Pirehill nursery.
I have 22 years experience of working with children along with being a mum to 3 young children.
I have achieved paediatric first aid, food hygiene, Safeguarding level 1 and level 2, effective team meetings, health and safety unit 1 and 2, moving and handling, EYFS observation and assessment and promoting positive behaviour level 1 and 2.
I am responsible for the day to day running of the pre-school, I ensure a smooth running of the pre-school at all times, ensuring that all policies, procedures and welfare requirements are met at all times. I ensure that planning is delivered in the correct manner for the children in my care to learn and develop, ensuring that all of the children follow the 7 areas of learning within a warm, loving, friendly and welcoming environment that they feel safe in to help them learn and grow. I act as a key worker within the setting completing the children’s individual profiles. I ensure that I build and maintain relationships with past, present and future parents, this includes showing prospective parents around the setting, holding parents evenings and open days to promote Smartys. I am also responsible for the day to day paperwork within the pre-school ensuring the team work well and promoting good working relationships on a professional basis.
I work with children because I enjoy the fulfilment of watching them grow and helping the children learn through all areas of development knowing that I play a large part in giving them the security, love and stimulation they need to learn in their vital early years of learning and preparation for school.
I am a very organised, devoted and caring member of the team, I enjoy caring for all of the children in my care. I offer a warm and welcoming environment to everyone, I feel I am able to offer a sense of ease to all parents and children. I also enjoy being very creative.
As a mum to 3 I have lots of experience and am always willing to offer my personal experience to all of the parents in my setting, I feel I am able to understand and be compassionate to every parent’s individual needs. I really do enjoy coming to work.
