More about Shirley Haddock

I am a mature mom with two young girls aged 2 and 4. 

I enjoy providing a nurturing, caring, safe and educational environment for children.  I believe children should be allowed to get dirty and that the best way for them to learn is through play and more play.

Children also respond well to structure so I run our days according to the themes of the week, music, messy play, show and tell, story time, cooking, gardening and art etc.
