Meet the Nursery Manager
Hello, my name is Alice. I have over 8 years’ of experience working within childcare, working across all age groups, including babies, toddlers and preschool children. I’m always looking for ways to push myself to do something new and evolve my practice, and I love sharing what I learn with my teams. I started my career in childcare as a practitioner, and through my hard work and passion, I made my way up to the position of Nursery Manager. I strongly believe in developing caring partnerships with parents and working collaboratively to achieve shared goals so that we can support the development of each and every child.
The Fennies Experience
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.
Nutrition & Well-being
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. The fee sheet will be relevant to the number of days and sessions that you require for your child. We offer a 10% sibling discount, applied to the older child.
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.
