Sharon & Trudy have worked in the Early Years Sector for well over 30 years, they both remain passionate about the importance and relevance of Early Years Development and Care and the positive impact this care has on a child's future growth and success. Sharon & Trudy work day to day in the nursery overseeing the smooth running, this helps maintain a high standard of care and promotes a strong relationship with the Team and Parents.
