About Me

Waiting list open.

Spending our days together learning through our community, play and lots of adventure

My name is Grace and I am so excited to be starting Gentle dais home nursery.
Inspired by my 2 daughters, I can't wait to open our home to families to give their little one's care, support and joy.

Our play room is a space in our home dedicated to open ended play, stories, singing, creating and cooking. We have been mindful about making this space warm, inviting and exciting for little ones. Each week they will find invitation to play activities based around a story or interest for them to explore and engage with in line with their development and the EYFS. We have a reading corner, art space and imaginative play area - each one giving opportunity to open ended play and imagination. Our outdoor space 'Muddy camp' will give little ones the opportunity to make mud pies, create obstacle courses, watch the birds, pond dip and enjoy the natural space rain or shine.

We will make connections within our local community - attending local groups, visiting the library and collaborating with the local residential home for some intergenerational fun.

Living so close to Valley parks, woods, the river, farms, beaches and so many more wonderful outdoor spaces we will regularly go on adventures to explore and embrace nature.

My husband, daughters, small dog and I love our home and hope it offers a safe and warm atmosphere your little one will love coming to.

My Experience

I have worked within education for 10 years, teaching health and social care to FE students. This has given me wealth of transferable skills and knowledge, including safeguarding, equality and diversity and the importance of celebrating each child for their individuality and helping them blossom.

I also have my own two children (a 4 year old & a 11 month old) who continue to teach me things every day.
