Hello and thank you for viewing our website
A warm welcome from the Nursery Manager
I have worked in Early Years for 12 years; since leaving school. At first I volunteered at a local nursery and this enabled me to realise that I had a passion for working with children. At an early age I obtained my ASA Level 1 and 2 Swimming Instructor Qualifications and worked part-time teaching swimming to children aged 3-11. This encouraged me further to pursue a career working with children.
I then went on to complete my BA (Hons) in Childcare and Education before continuing to gain my Early Years Teacher Status at Reading University.
I joined The Wigwam in July 2017 as the Preschool Room Leader and thoroughly enjoyed my time in that role. I have been lucky enough to further my career in the Deputy Manager role and now as Manager. I look forward to what the future brings!
& from the Owners
We are the husband and wife team, who have owned the Wigwam Day Nursery since September 2017.
Eamonn looks after the business side of things, while Urvashi, a highly qualified Early Years practitioner (Early Years, BA), focuses on ensuring our nursery maintains the highest standards.
Prior to acquiring Wigwam, we built a nursery business from scratch in Chiswick, West London. The quality of this setting was recently recognised by an Outstanding rating from Ofsted.
Our ethos is to develop a culture of continuous improvement, investing in our staff and creating a happy, well qualified and motivated team. This in turn creates a happy environment, where your child can grow and develop. We know if our children are happy, our parents will be happy. Here is a link to the Ofsted report on the owners other setting, which they built from scratch.
We are always keen to hear from parents and available to chat in person at a time which suits you, please don’t hesitate to contact us on email@example.com
