Cheryl joined Woodberry Day Nursery Ltd in June 2016, starting out as the Manager of our Sholing nursery. With her BA in Early Education and Early Years Professional Status and brimming with enthusiasm, she jumped in at the deep end: OFSTED came to inspect the setting just a few weeks later and the nursery achieved ‘OUTSTANDING!’. A trained SENDCo and Designated Safeguarding Officer, Cheryl works closely with each member of her team to ensure that their continual professional development results in the very best care and education for all of our children. Cheryl has been instrumental in rolling out “In the moment planning” for our older children, being led by their interests having read about the example set by Carterhatch Infant School. Alongside child-led learning, Cheryl sees the benefit of short but regular adult led inputs – especially in the preschool – and has recently rolled out the use of “Action Stories” to broaden the children’s storytelling vocabulary. Cheryl now leads our motivated and skilled team at Woodberry Day Nursery Peartree.
