My name is Amy Rayner and my journey began here at Happy Days in August 2016 as a Leader witin the the Baby Room, I soon progressed my way up to Nursery Manager which took affect in December 2016. I have eight years experience working with children of many ages and having been in previous Management roles I believe I have the knowledge and experience to lead my staff team :)
Our Baby Room
Our Baby Room is lead by Toni who is a credit to our team. Her skills, experience and knowledge shines through with all that she does. Toni has over 15 years experience working with children of all ages. Toni works alongside Sophie who has worked for Happy Days for 3 years. Sophie has always worked within our Baby Room and has great knowledge of our babies needs and interests. Sophie and Toni work amazingly well together and this shows via our babies!
Our 2-5's Room
Our 2-5's are lucky enough to have two leaders. We have Donna who is our Deputy Manager and Emma. Donna and Emma work alongside Katie and Aliya and have all worked for Happy Days for numerous years. Having such a broad age range of children within this room, our staff put in lots of care and support to ensure all our children's development needs are met. We have a free flow routine in place across our three rooms, leading to our outdoor area. The children love having the choice of where to explore. All our areas of provision are set up accordingly to our children needs and abilities.
Our Hut Team
The Hut provides a Before and After School Care and the Holiday Club. Toni leads the team in this room, she has had lots of out of school experience, making her ideal for working with this exciting age. Keith is our Transport Coordinator, he is here every morning and evening ensuring everyone gets to school on time. We also have Sara that works within the Hut, she has a daughter of her own, similar age to our Hut children therefore she is understanding to each child's needs. Sara's passion is dancing and signing, our children love learning new skills in our new and improved 'Sound Zone' room.
