My name is Lamarie and I’m the Manager here at Hungry Caterpillars Hanwell. Working with children has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember, so I decided in 2006 to start my career as a Nursery Practitioner. As time went on I became engrossed in this role and wanted to continue to develop as much as I could. I went on to further study and gained a Level 3 CACHE Diploma in Childcare and Education, following on at Roehampton University gaining a BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies.
Our wonderful new Hanwell nursery is a beautifully designed and laid out setting based within Hanwell Children Centre.
We are thrilled to announce plans for our new nursery in Hanwell. The nursery contract was awarded via a tender process headed by Ealing Early Years and will be the our sixth setting based within an Ealing Children’s Centre. It has been over three years since we opened our last children centre based nursery, that being Acton Park, which we took over as an inadequate setting and quickly turned around to achieve a Good Ofsted grading at our first inspection.
Olivia Foley, founder & Director of Hungry Caterpillars said:
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to be involved with this vibrant and busy children’s centre. We currently offer our services at many locations across West London and we are very happy to now add Hanwell to our Caterpillar Family.”
A learning rich environment
The nursery is designed to take full advantage of the fantastic garden area which leads directly off each of the children’s areas and allows for free flow to the outdoors. Outdoor learning is so important which is why we encourage children to be outside at every opportunity and in addition run regular Forest School sessions for our pre-schoolers. Children will also enjoy weekly French lessons, musical movement sessions and local outings which will broaden their view on the world.
We place an emphasis on working in partnership with you and give you the opportunity to join our Parent Forum. We hope you will feel part of our homely nursery and your child’s care even when you’re apart.
