Leah said: “I love my job at The Wendy House! It’s satisfying nurturing the children and seeing them grow and develop. It’s a huge responsibility keeping children safe and secure while they’re away for their parents, but I truly believe that because the nursery sets such high standards there is no better place for them to be than here at The Wendy House.”


Sophie Hollis

Job Title: Practitioner

Joined: 2015


Sophie joined The Wendy House in September 2015 and can be found in Foundation Unit, where she is a hit with the children!

Sophie is a well-qualified practitioner, who has a BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Education and Care.

In her own words: “I am so proud to be part of a nursery that has been rated Outstanding by Ofsted. I work in Foundation Unit, where we have one intake of pre-school children per year, so we can really focus on individual children’s’ learning outcomes in maths and phonics. It’s great to see the children progress, and winning the Nursery World Award in 2016 for our work in Foundation Unit was the icing on the cake!!”
