Stephanie Willetts is the Deputy Manager of Sparsholt and Room Supervisor of Bee Garden. Steph originally worked at Farley (Salisbury) before being promoted to Sparsholt over four years ago, where she dazzles the parents and children with her charm and humour. Steph completed her BA in Early Years in 2016 and uses these skills while playing in the outdoor learning environment. Steph says “Farley is like nowhere else, we get to spend our days exploring the environment, watching the children learn and having endless fun. Whether we are playing in the sun, or splashing in the muddy puddles, we are always laughing with our Farley friends.”
Amy is the full proof that hard work pays off! Amy started her career as a nursery trainee at Steeple Langford over 5 years ago where she completed her Level 3 in Childcare and Amy’s potential shone through. Amy was promoted to become the Room Supervisor of Marigold and Merrygrove (the under 2’s) at Sparsholt in September 2014 and she has never looked back! Amy has an incredible knowledge of the baby room and of Sparsholt due to her hardworking approach! Amy says “I love to see the babies flourish when they play outside in all weathers. To start a child’s nursery life with us in the baby room, and then to be a part of their first physical steps, on the journey to who they become as a person is wonderfully rewarding.”
Laura joined the Sparsholt in September 2017 as a member of the Top Conker team. Laura gained her Level 3 qualification and is now studying towards a BA in early Years. Laura is very excited to be leading the children in their final year at Farley. When asked about her role at Farley Laura said “It’s amazing how much the children change throughout the year in Top Conker. They grow in independence and resilience and learn to play kindly with their Farley friends. Our favourite thing to do is sliding down the muddy hill in the winter and splashing in the paddling pool during the summertime, where else can you work and have that much fun!”
