Early Years Staff

Early Years Staff

The staff in our Early Years setting are lead by the experienced Head of Early Years, Mrs Carpenter. She is a passionate, energetic and welcoming member of Little Long Close, always available for support or guidance. We also have a highly experienced Nursery Manager, Tina Brindley, who supports Mrs Carpenter in ensuring our Nursery is continuously improving and evolving.

All of the Early Years staff are qualified early years practitioners, specially trained to offer just the right blend of enthusiasm, engagement and motivation to our boys and girls. We positively encourage every member of staff to acquire further qualifications and to take advantage of our own in-house training so that we can continue to improve every aspect of our provision.

Please book a space at one of our Virtual Open Mornings, or a 1-2-1 tour of Early Years, by BOOKING HERE.

Mrs Carpenter, Head of Early Years

Little Long Close is a special place where your child can begin the exciting of adventure of School in a welcoming and nurturing environment. Being a school nursery, the children are gently introduced to routine and learning, which builds their confidence and helps them make the next step into Pre-school and then Reception. We ensure all of our teachers and Early Years practitioners are qualified to Level 3 as a minimum requirement, this ensures your children receive the best care. I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you either virtually or on a pre-booked tour of our Early Years’ purpose-built setting.

Mrs Brindley, Nursery Manager

Children who start at Long Close School Nursery enjoy a wide variety of activities designed to inspire them and build self confidence. Our Forest School classroom has just opened and children from 2 years upwards love their weekly lessons. Our Nursery children also benefit from weekly dance classes and sports lessons from specialist teachers. Nursery children are in the same building as Pre-school and Reception children so they learn to play confidently with the older children too. It is a wonderful start to a child’s education.
