I’m Andrea and I’ve been the manager at Potley Hill Early Years since September 2018. I am NNEB trained and have a BA (hons) degree in Early Years Education. With over 25 years of opportunities and experience in Early Years I am lucky enough to be able to create a setting filled with authentic treasures and open ended materials. Together with my passionate and forward thinking tribe of staff, we bring a mix of Montessori, Steiner, Reggio Emilia and Te Whariki philosophies to our environment as we work towards a Curiosity Approach accreditation.
Our beautiful natural environment gives our children plenty of opportunities to have real life, authentic experiences. We work together from the heart to create a community based on a culture of respect for the environment, all living creatures and each other. Our children are welcomed into a stimulating, well-resourced and natural environment that awakens their creativity and helps them develop a wide range of skills, we teach our children how to think, not what to think!
I’m so proud of our magical environment and love to show it off, I’m sure you and your child will enjoy your journey with us creating the thinkers and doers of the future.
