Why I Love Our Nursery - By Our Manager Rachel

When I was asked to write about what I love about Jabberwocky, several things came to my mind immediately. I thought about the diversity of opportunities that we offer our children from such a young age, and then of course I thought about our unique and wonderful forest school arboretum. More and more aspects of this magical place sprang to mind. I often admire how we are able to combine several approaches to early years to create a unique ethos for our children, drawing on our favourite aspects of Montessori, Steiner, the curiosity approach and in the moment planning to create the very best learning experience for our children.

On a personal level I particularly enjoy the annual traditions and extra visits like zoo lab, the chicken egg program, the Christmas celebrations and visits to the pumpkin patch and Christmas tree farm, I not only love them because they are enjoyable and exciting to watch the children participate in, but because I love that we are able to offer our children these opportunities that they may not access elsewhere.

I not only love, but am proud of being a plastic free nursery. Getting to be part of the transition from plastic toys in a brightly coloured, highly stimulating environment to authentic, real resources in a calm, Hygge environment has been inspiring and the transformation across the nursery was simply wonderful.

Another particularly enjoyable part of my job is watching and supporting the staff to grow and flourish into experienced, genuine and authentic practitioners with a wealth of knowledge and hands-skills to begin their career in childcare. Watching them transition from apprentices to qualified staff who are capable of teaching others and take on more and more responsibilities is something I enjoy being a part of at Jabberwocky too.
