I am training to be an Early Years Teacher. I have volunteered at Garden Cottage for the past 6 months and am now working here for three days a week whilst I study. I have wanted to work with young children for a long time and having been a parent at the nursery for several years, Jane has very kindly given me this opportunity.

Every day at Garden Cottage brings something entirely new and it is wonderful to see the children learning from all the many experiences that the nursery has to offer. I am really keen to help develop the Forest School at the nursery and we have some really exciting ideas for the children to both enjoy and learn from. It is not just the setting and the importance placed on being outdoors at Garden Cottage that really stands out to me, it is the absolute dedication and talent of all the staff to provide the best experiences possible for the children during their early years.
