Haylea

Proprietor & Operations Manager

 

I was inspired to set up Flexi-Minder after the birth of my first baby.  As the Manager of a Clothes shop I found it difficult to meet the childcare needs of my family. My search highlighted the lack of affordable care for people who work outside of the normal 9 - 5  day.

 

My vision is to offer good quality, flexible childcare at competitive prices.

Sally

Education Manager & Early Years Teacher

 

I am responsible for the learning and development of the children, and I support staff to ensure that each child has a successful and enjoyable day at Flexi-Minder.  I am also a Forest School Leader and take a group of children out to local woodland two afternoons a week.

I take a holistic and child-centred approach to education, encouraging the children to lead their own purposeful play experiences.  I teach the children by first immersing myself in their play; I then use my observations and assessments to plan activities and experiences that advance their understanding and development. 

I am currently developing my own learning as I study towards my Masters degree in Early Years Education.

Grace

Deputy Manager & Early Years Teacher

 

I am an experienced Primary Teacher and Early Years Senior Practitioner, with four children of my own. I have a first class degree in Early Childhood Studies and I have seven years experience working with students with learning difficulties.  Looking after children, both professionally and personally, as an educator and a parent, means that I care for your little ones the way I would like someone to look after my own children.

I am the key group leader for the Gruffalos Key Group.  I spend time observing and playing with the children and plan appropriate experiences and challenges for the children in order for them to develop and explore the world.  Building strong relationships with the children and their families, means I can really get to know the children and better meet their holistic needs - creating happy, little people!

Zahraa

Early Years Leader

 

Hi there! My name is Zahraa. I have a level 3 CACHE qualification in Childcare and Education and I am currently studying towards my degree in Early Years and Childhood Studies at Manchester Metropolitan University. 

It is such a rewarding feeling to be part of each child’s journey of development, from listening to them babble as a baby to one day having a full conversation with them.  Watching and helping children to learn and develop gives me such a sense of achievement – I know that I have helped that child’s development. In the future, I aspire to work with a wide range of children including children with behaviour issues, mental illnesses and disabilities, as I would like to expand my knowledge and heart to be able to help these young angels grow into something big and beautiful!
