Hello, my name is Jo Parker and I am the Manager of our Yellow Dot Nursery in Hedge End. I joined the Yellow Dot family in June 2017 after managing pre-schools, nurseries and children's centres across Hampshire for the previous seven years. I originally started working in early years when my daughter joined pre-school in 2003 and instantly loved working with young children and babies. I later gained Early Years Professional Status by studying at the University of Winchester, which enabled me to improve practice in the many setting I have worked in, building on my first degree in Accounting and Management from Cardiff University.
I am passionate about improving standards and outcomes for children and families. I believe a nursery should be a lively, fun, happy place where children are inspired to learn through play and learn in the way that comes most naturally to them. At Yellow Dot Hedge End Nursery we continually work to provide excellent care through a nurturing team that works closely with parents.
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
