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 Nurseries and for the most of that time, specifically with the preschool age group. I am passionate about providing a stimulating environment where children can have exciting learning opportunities from a young age, preparing them for that transition into School. I work alongside a small, dedicated 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 specialist pre-school education in a friendly, fun, and stimulating environment for children from the age of 2 to School age. We pride ourselves on the close relations that we develop with the children and their families, and we endeavour to ensure that every child feels safe, happy and has engaging activities during their time with us. The Kindergarten 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. We love to be outside as much as we can! Being part of the Yellow Dot family, we are fortunate to have access to a wide variety of resources, advice on latest childcare practice and shared training. I do hope you will come and visit us!
Our activities are founded on the Early Years Foundation Stage which focuses on:
