Claire- Early Years Practitioner

I am a qualified Early Years Child Care Practitioner. I have an NVQ Level 3 Diploma and have had experience with children in nursery and preschool settings as well as infant and primary school. I have previously worked with children with special educational needs and I enjoy supporting children to help them develop and flourish. I am passionate about children’s learning and giving them experiences to explore, play and have fun! I believe children need a loving, caring and nurturing environment as they grow and as a mum myself I know how important it is that they have a wonderful and positive experience in their preschool years before they start school. I am very excited to be a part of this special journey with your children at Little Hearts Preschool, creating the best possible experiences and memories for their start in life. 

Mr Sully- Children’s Well-being Mentor

My name is Mr Sully. I joined Little Hearts Preschool Cranleigh in September 2020. My role is to talk to the children about emotions and feelings. I have a special power that I share with the children. My power is that I love to gobble up all types of worries and I am excellent at helping them disappear. My motto is ” A worry expressed will put your mind at rest!” I am studying towards a Child Psychology Diploma and I enjoy helping children feel safe and settled. I am lucky to have my own special bench where I sit all day, when any of the children want to talk about any thing that is on their minds on a 1:1 basis I am always there for them.
