Hi, my name is Laura Silverwood and I am the deputy manager, and big bears room leader at Sandy Bears.
I love working at sandy bears because I work alongside a fabulous team of practitioners who each show their love for their job and each support one another to ensure that the children are having the best possible early years experiences. I LOVE my job because it is so rewarding to be a part of supporting the beginning of your child's life.
In the big bears room there is never a dull moment, it is a honour to be working with this age group because it is the stage where they are beginning to communicate more, and start to develop their confidence and own independence.
I enjoy being a ‘special grownup’ to the children as I want to make there early years as memorable as possible. I find it very important to develop a good bond with your child and I try my best to ensure they feel happy and secure and enjoy coming to sandy bears. Being a key person means I can support a group of children to learn and develop according to their needs and current interests.
I want to make sure that your child wants to come to sandy bears knowing that they are going to have a great fun filled day. To ensure they have a smooth transition into the big bear room I will make sure that I am aware of current interests of your child, I will spend time with them to help them feel comfortable in their surroundings.
