Louisa Soden - Centre Director

Louisa Soden

Centre Director

My name is Louisa Soden and I am the Centre Director here at Stokenchurch. I have been working in Early Years and childcare for 17 years. Working with children from 3 months to 16 years of age. I have a degree in Early years and childhood studies and many years’ experience working with children with SEND education.

Stokenchurch is a beautiful rural 58 place nursery, being part of the Busy Bees umbrella allows us to give children we care for “the best start in life” At Stokenchurch we pride ourselves on our enriching teaching environments and as a staff team we are always striving for more from our children. We have our own parent committee to discuss ideas and visions as a “Stokenchurch family”, we communicate continuously with our parents offering regular stay and play sessions, newsletter and events. We offer amazing daily experiences through are play activities, this is reflected in our planning and assessments. Stokenchurch is  vibrant nursery with a dedicated management and staff team.
