Meet the Nursery Manager

Louise

Louise has worked in childcare for over 12 years, working in independent nurseries as well as larger settings. Since joining Fennies as a Deputy Manager, Louise developed her knowledge and skills as she progressed through to a manager role. This drive inspires her team who are passionate about enriching everyday experiences and adding a spark of magic to learning.

Louise values the significant role her team plays in the lives of all the happy children at Fennies Horley nursery, which is reflected in the wonderful bonds developed with their families. Louise provides outstanding care by supporting children’s learning within an environment that’s based around their existing interests.

Our passionate team are specially trained to deliver and support children through a wide variety of learning opportunities including STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) activities, creative expression, communication and language, and physical development.

The Fennies Ethos centres around three core pillars; your child’s development and education, our collaboration with parents, and our collective staff team of internal experts, our key to providing ‘the right start for under 5’s’ for all children.   

We welcome children to our Horley day nursery from the ages of 3 months to 5 years old and our unique curriculum offers an enhanced delivery of the EYFS framework. This includes a specifically designed STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) program, focused art sessions inspired by famous Artists, and lessons delivered by our internal PE and Linguistics Coaches to inspire and support your child.  

We believe it is important to develop an environmental awareness from an early age which is why we are involved in Eco-Schools awards and the Farmer Time scheme. This educates our pre school children in ways they can look after the planet and develop an appreciation for the world around them.   

The experiences children have at our Horley day nursery lead up to a bespoke school readiness program, designed by the Fennies education team and consist of the Manager working closely with your child and family when transitioning to school.  

We recognise the importance of the well-being of children’s minds at all ages and encourage them to become confident little communicators when it comes to managing their emotions. Mindful activities, designed to calm and self regulate, are incorporated into children’s daily routines. Alongside this, all our Room Leaders are trained in teaching pre school yoga to encourage physical play and enhance emotional development.    Nutrition plays a huge role in children’s focus, creativity, and mindset. Our nurseries are accredited with the EYNP (Early Years Nutrition Partnership) and our menus are designed alongside a registered nutritionist. Meals are then cooked on-site by our Chefs using all the fresh, balanced ingredients your child needs to learn and be happy.   Nutrition goes beyond our menus and we actively involve children in growing their own fruits and vegetables as well as teaching your child positive mealtime routines to lay the groundwork for future healthy habits.  

Availability and Fees

Fees are calculated on a daily basis and vary depending upon the days and the number of sessions that your child attends. You will provide you with a detailed fee sheet in advance of registration.

Childcare fees are paid in advance on the first working day of the month. Direct Debits are collected on the first working day of the month.
