A WARM WELCOME FROM GEL BAKER
I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead Charters Ancaster Nursery and Forest School during this exciting period of growth and development. I have been a member of the Charters Ancaster team for the last 10 years, working my way through different roles, from lunchtime assistant, practitioner, and room leader.
In September of 2018, I initiated the introduction of a baby room to enable the progression of the nursery.
What I love about Charters Ancaster is the universal feeling you get when you walk through the door and feel you are being welcomed home by family. I am a firm believer that Hygge is the way forward. Hygge is a Danish word with no direct translation to English but is about embracing the simple joys in life, feeling joy and appreciation for simple moments in your day. For the children, this means bringing joy, wonder, and comfort to their lives.
We are lucky to have this wonderful environment in which to promote this new approach.
Forest School is supervised and planned for by our qualified Forest School leader Sarah in our own extensive woodlands and gardens. It gives opportunities for the children to engage with nature and get outdoors in all weathers.
