Finkley brochure V11 - Flipbook - Page 4
My background in childcare began as a childminder in 2010. My aim was to create a
homely space – the kind of space where I’d be happy to send my own children. Right
from the start the most important element for me was, and continues to be, to
encourage learning through play with a whole host of fun activities and experiences
including days out and daily adventures. It’s proved to be a winning formula as I’m one
of the few childminders to have only ever been rated Outstanding by Ofsted.
So when my husband Gary and I were approached by the popular attraction Finkley
Down Farm with the opportunity to open a nursery, we brought my childminding ethos
to our nursery and pre-school. Since then we’ve set up Finkley Weeke in Winchester
and East Anton in Andover.
Every day the children get to choose what they want to do, and every day they get to
visit the farm or go on an adventure, so we never run out of new ideas to keep the them
engaged and inspired. Whilst each venue has been individually designed to optimise
the space for childcare, each has the same access to Finkley Down Farm
and the same brilliant ethos applies.
We have a fabulous award
winning team of likeminded passionate staff
and we care for them and
their development as
much as we care for all the
children. We all work together to share ideas to ensure we’re continually offering the very best
in childcare. Our aim is to nurture your child and make sure they have fun, learn and return
home fulfilled and happy. We pride ourselves on happy children, happy parents, happy staff.
We know choosing the right nursery can be an anxious time for parents, so to get a real
sense of what we’re all about, come and visit to see first hand how we’ll provide the very
best care for your child when they can’t be with you.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
