Hello my name is Charlotte Tubbs, I am the Manager of our beautiful purpose built Chilworth Nursery. I have over 10 years child care experience and am thrilled to now be leading and inspiring a team to deliver outstanding practice here on the Science Park. In my first childcare role, I enrolled myself onto a foundation degree at Winchester University.
I extended my learning further as a Pre-School Room Manager with a BA honours degree in Early Childhood Studies through the Open University. I joined Yellow Dot as a Deputy Manager and completed my degree in 2016. The majority of my career has been working with children aged 3 - 5 years which is where my love for letters and sounds begun! Letters and sounds has been a passion of mine since my first position as a pre-school practitioner and alongside letters and sounds naturally comes 'school readiness'.
Throughout my career I have supported many children with additional needs, another passion that was sparked early on in my career and last year I was lucky enough to become SENCO whilst based at Winchester Yellow Dot which enabled me to enhance my practice further. I am driven to provide a fun, safe and stimulating environment for all children who attend our setting and working close with the team to ensure the children we care for have fun real life experiences.
Our OFSTED Inspector said "the highly stimulating and extremely well organised environment enables children to be independent and to initiate their own play and ideas. As a result children are highly motivated and eager to explore. Children make excellent progress highly effective leadership and management ensures the safe and smooth running of the Nursery. The quality of teaching across the Nursery is outstanding. Staff provide an exceptional range of high quality learning experiences for the children, both inside and outdoors."
Yellow Dot Chilworth Nursery is located in Southampton Science Park. Set in an award winning, purpose-built building this is a truly delightful location for your child with its own outside play areas and car parking facility.
At Yellow Dot Nursery we believe it is important to consider the whole child. We value children as individuals, recognising and supporting their needs as appropriate. We offer a balanced programme of activities designed to be stimulating and educational whilst being fun. We recognise the role adults play and how children and adults learn from each other and enrich each others lives.
