Hi, my name is Evelyn Herrera and I am the Nursery Manager here at The Wandsworth Nursery and Pre-School Academy. I have over 18 years experience working in Early Years Education and enjoy working closely with parents and families to provide each child with learning opportunities tailored to their skills and stage of development.
I have over 18 years experience in early years education, I have a Primary Teacher Degree and a level 5 in management. I am extremely passionate about working with children and a fluent communicator within the childcare sector.
I am also a parent of 2 lovely daughters, one of my daughters is 19 years old and my second daughter is 22 months.
It's not every day you get the privilege of having your child with you at the same place you work. Having my daughter attend my nursery, not only allows me to watch her ongoing development, but it motivates me to set a high standard of education and development practice in my nursery.
My nursery has an amazing staff team that have fabulous experience and are all truly dedicated to each and every child. My staff have been here for many years and you will enjoy getting to know them all better to support your child through their stages of development.
Also at the Nursery we have partnered with ParentZone to supply an online Learning Journal platform for each child, which parents can view online via a smart phone app or on the Parent Zone website bringing you closer to your child's development at nursery.
Had it not been my nursery, I'd be looking for a suitable setting that is conduit to my child's ongoing development, safety and happiness. And having worked with the team at BusyBees I feel this is the right place where she can flourish. I've seen her development rapidly escalate and I can only put this down to the improvements in practice and the high standards I expect from my staff.
I am passionate about working with children and thrive on creating positive and safe environment where staff and children can flourish.
I invite you to continue browsing our nursery website and hope that you find the information you need. You can find out more about myself and my wonderful longstanding staff team here.
Words and pictures can only provide an insight into life at our nursery and I would love for you to book a visit to experience our beautiful nursery setting, facilities and meet our dedicated team. If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to get in touch.
I hope to welcome you soon!
Our Busy Bees nursery in Wandsworth is a stunning purpose built setting, that features bright and spacious rooms for children ages 0-5 years to develop and flourish.
We have age-appropriate rooms for all children, filled with state-of-the-art equipment and unlimited learning opportunities, so that children can have fun playing and learn at their own pace. Each room has the flexibility to offer the ideal environment for every child, depending on their age and stage of development.
Preparing children for 'big school' is something that we truly encourage throughout our nursery in a sociable and independent way. Our nursery follows the EYFS statutory framework, offers unique learning enhancements to develop core skills such as Shake and Write and has excellent links with local schools, making our nursery and Pre-School Academy the perfect environment for children to develop.
Our Busy Bees Childcare team work hard to develop unique learning enhancements for our nursery, to help promote core skills in children at every stage of their development.
We are proud to have an amazing nursery chef, Donna who prepares fresh meals and snacks each day for the children to enjoy, in line with the Silver Food For Life Catering Mark by the Soil Association. Children regularly take part in Cooking with Me sessions with Donna, which helps to develop their cooking skills and understanding of food. Just ask us what is on our seasonal food menu to learn more about the fantastic food we provide in our nursery!
We love to build strong relationships with our parents, to ensure that the highest quality of care is provided to all children. We work in partnership with parents to understand every child's individual needs and interests so that we can deliver tailored care that suits every child's skills and development.
Our parent partnership group meets every quarter, giving parents the opportunity to be involved in fundraising for our charity or provide support to new parents. We are always welcoming new parents to join.
We are conveniently located opposite the Holiday inn express Wandsworth, within walking distance of Wandsworth Town train station linking straight into London. We are very lucky to be situated right on the ‘Thames path’, a new riverside complex and we are within walking distance to Wandsworth town centre and all its amenities.
Our nursery offers parents a free parking drop off and collection service for existing parents.
We would love to show you around our stunning nursery and tell you more about everything we have to offer you and your child. You can book a visit to see us here.
