Kate Nicholson 13th February 2015

Cranmer preschool is a charitable child care setting, based at Archbishop Cranmer School in the village of Aslockton. Established in 1978, the preschool is managed by an experienced early years qualified teacher and preschool leader, Kate Nicholson, who leads a team of 10 of qualified and highly experienced preschool assistants, some of whom have been working their for over 25 years. 

 

The preschool caters for children from the age of 2 years to 4 + and is open Monday to Friday from 7.45am until 6pm.

 

Highlights from the ofsted report include;

 

  • A highly dedicated and inspiring preschool team. Staff are highly skilled in knowing how to support them in their play and when to allow the children to create and develop the direction of their play independently.
  • The enthusiastic manager provides strong, passionate leadership. She is committed to driving excellence in all aspects of preschool life.
  • The setting is laden with opportunities that motivate and inspire children to learn. Children thrive in this setting because every effort is made to cater for their differing needs, adapting and extending activities to continually encourage and challenge children.
  • The environment is exceptionally well resourced, friendly and stimulating. 
  • Children's behaviour is exemplary because the staff are excellent roles models.
  • This is a welcoming preschool where children enjoy and outstanding early years experience, which provides a firm foundation upon which to support their future learning.

Make a difference to someone in 2015 with Rushcliffe Befriends

Lindsay Knott 12th February 2015
 

 

 

Rushcliffe Befriends supports older people who are isolated or lonely to be more involved in their communities through the assistance of a brilliant bunch of volunteers who are all over 50.   The aim is not only to provide some company but also to encourage the person to get out and about in their communities more, maybe to join a club or social group, and to enjoy a greater level of independence.  

 

Our volunteers come from all walks of life and all get great satisfaction from knowing they are helping people in this way.   Volunteers gain new skills, make new friends, find out more about their communities and have a lot of fun along the way.

 

We are really keen to find more volunteers across the whole of Rushcliffe, but particularly in the area round Bingham / Aslockton / Whatton.   If this appeals to you and you can spare a couple of hours a week, please get in touch with us for an initial chat.   Training is provided and expenses paid.
