Hello I am Maryanne Strickland and I am the Manager for Yellow Dot Kindergarten. I gained my Diploma in Child Care in South Africa and am currently working towards my Level 5 in Early Years Education. I have worked with Yellow Dot for a number of years gaining experience in 3 different settings. I am passionate about inspiring our children and their families and providing a stimulating environment where children can learn from a young age. I work alongside a small passionate team who all want to achieve the best outcomes for each individual child.
Set in the peaceful location of North Millers Dale, Yellow Dot Kindergarten provides a friendly, fun, and educationally stimulating environment for children from the age of 2 to school age. Here at Yellow Dot, we pride ourselves on the close relations that we develop with both the children that we care for, as well as their families, and we endeavour to ensure that every child feels safe, happy and inspired during their time at Kindergarten. The Kindergarten itself consists of a large, inside space with direct access to our enclosed, outside area, where children are free to come and go throughout most of the day, as part of our free-flow routine. With the wide variety of resources and activities provided, and the guidance and support of the skilled staff who work here, children are able to realize their full potential as part of a group, and as individuals.
Our activities are founded on the Early Years Foundation Stage which focuses on:
