“Hello! My name is Olivia and i am the assistant manager and deputy designated safeguarding lead of Cygnets Bratton. I’m 24 years old and have 6 years experience of working in nurseries. I’m very passionate about providing a safe environment for your children, providing them with natural and real life objects to create a homely feel which also transports them into a land of awe and wonder! I look forward to getting to know you and your children in the coming months”
“Growing up, i always knew that i wanted to work with children. I started my apprenticeship in Early Years Childcare and Education in 2016. I have worked in childcare for 3.5 years now and love being able to watch and help children develop their own personalities and grow ready for their new adventure of “big school””
“It’s a really exciting time here at Bratton with the new Preschool opening and i would like to share with you a little about myself. I’ve been working within Early Years for the seven years and love it. No two days are the same! It is great that you can bring teaching into the children’s play without them knowing. I’m passionate about special needs and making sure that all children have a chance to access everything. I am a mum of two boys aged 14 and 11. My youngest son has additional needs and as a SENCo, has been the greatest way to learn and see the world through his eyes. I’m a light hearted fun person who always looks for the positive in all situations. ”
