My name is Laura Temperley, I live with my partner of 10 years, James who works as a primary school teacher, and we have a beautiful 4 year old daughter called Isla. I am a qualified Nursery Nurse with 15 years’ experience working with young children and their families. I have worked in both private day care and state funded settings. My most recent role was managing a Sure Start Children’s Centre which meant I was able to work more closely with parents as well as organising and delivering quality play sessions and other family services for children 0-5 years old. During this this time I also undertook a master’s level qualification for Children’s Centre Managers. I believe that all children are unique and each learn and develop at their own pace. I provide a stimulating, fun and play based environment, where children are free to explore indoors and outdoors and with the toys and equipment that they choose. I offer a variety of activities which cover the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS), of which I have much experience and a deep understanding of. I ensure that a balance of play and learning is maintained with the children feeling relaxed and comfortable in my homely setting. I have a dedicated play room for the children which leads out into our secure garden.
