One of the owners, Clare recently completed her Foundation Degree in Early Years at Hastings University. This further education has lead to some major changes in our practice to enhance children's experiences at the nursery and was instrumental in bringing Forest School to Amberley. She has now started her BA course and aims to finish the honour course before becoming an Early Years Professional. We wish her all the best with her studies.
