Hello, my name is Louise Walker and I am the Manager of our Yellow Dot Nursery in Hedge End. I gained my level 3 diploma at Itchen College and later went on to achieve my level 5 at Southampton University in 2008.
I joined Hedge End in 2013 as the Baby Room Senior after working in a local Infant School as a Teaching Assistant for 10 years. During my summer holidays I was lucky enough to be able to work as a 'youthie' for a cruise company, enabling me to see many different parts of the world whilst looking after a broad age range of children on their holidays! In 2014, I was promoted to Baby Room Manager, then to Nursery Deputy.
I am very passionate about creating a safe, fun, happy and stimulating environment in which all children can learn and grow at their own pace. By working closely with my Team we provide extensive opportunities to enable this through our wonderful environment and secure key person system. I believe in and strive to establish open, honest and trusting relationships with all our families. I look forward to welcoming you and working with you in the future.
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:
Monday to Friday, 8:00am - 6:00pm
Earlybird 7:45am by arrangement
(Sessions 8:00am - 1:00pm / 1:00pm - 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
