NataliePaverMeet Natalie - Nursery Manager

I have been working with children for nearly 12 years now and no 2 days are the same. I have a foundation degree and BA Hons degree both in early years. After these studies I went on to qualify as an early years professional with Huddersfield University.

I have 6 years managerial experience working across a number of childcare settings. Working with children gives me the drive and passion to improve the lives of the families we work with.

I enjoy a challenge and love the variety that working with different families offers. As a new nursery at Wincobank offers a number of different challenges but it promises to be an exciting time, full of hustle and bustle.

I'm excited to meet all our new children and show them all the fun new learning spaces we have created for their enjoyment.

The Wincobank nursery team are excited to be providing Sheffield with a new day care concept that promises to build the generations of our future

CharlotteMooreMeet Charlotte - Apprentice

During my time at sixth form I studied several modules within my A level Health and Social Care course, with my favourite being Early Years.

With only studying certain areas within the Early Years sector, I was eager to learn more and more about childcare. This lead to me finishing sixth form to find an apprenticeship in childcare, My favourite thing about working with children is meeting their needs and ensuring they feel happy and content in an environment where they can play and learn in all areas of development.

Meals

Minibugs Wincobank provide all children with a healthy, balanced and nutritious menu with snacks and meals prepared and cooked fresh on site by food safety trained staff.

Minibugs Wincobank recently received Sheffield’s Healthy Early Years Gold Award which recognises the steps practitioners take to provide the children with healthy, nutritious meals and snacks as well as teaching them the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle including participating in physical activity.

Our menus change each term and coincide with seasonal changes in fruit and vegetables etc. Cultural and dietary requirements are considered for all meals and snack times and we encourage children to experience foods from different cultures..

The menu works on a 5 week cycle, starting with week 1 the meals go in order from Monday to Friday. Week 2 then starts with week ones Monday meal as the Tuesday meal and so on, as to ensure all children attending get the full range of the menu and are not always eating the same meal in nursery.
