Clare, Manager Yellow Dot Nursery Fair Oak

My name is Clare Ashton and I am the Manager of Yellow Dot Fair Oak.

I am very passionate and committed to providing outstanding care and learning opportunities for all the children in a fun, safe and stimulating environment where we follow the children's interests so they can learn, explore and develop to their full potential.

I joined Yellow Dot in 2002 as a Senior Nursery Nurse, was promoted to Room Manager, then Deputy and then worked across the Group in a support function. I was supported by Yellow Dot to study for my Early Years Degree in Childhood Studies. Most recently, I also took the role of leading music across all Nurseries delivering music to the children and Team as I do love to sing and dance! My own children were cared for by Yellow Dot, so I benefit from having the parents' perspective too.

Our activities are founded on the Early Years Foundation Stage which focuses on:

We believe children and adults learn from each other and enrich each others lives. The Nursery is divided into four areas:

Opening times

Monday to Friday, 8:00am - 6:00pm

Children may attend on either a full time or part time basis.
The Nursery is open 51 weeks a year.


We accept Childcare Vouchers and Early Years Education Funding
