A message from our new manager, Samina.

Dear Clayhall parents,

We hope you are all well and most important of all keeping warm! As many of you will be aware, we have a new manager at Clayhall Nursery & Pre-School. We carried out an extensive search to find the best candidate who would fit into and share our aspirations and we firmly know we have that now with Samina.

We have asked Samina to share some comments, please see below:

I am delighted to be running Clayhall nursery as Nursery Manager. I have now spent 15 very successful years working with children and being a part of their learning and development makes me proud every day!  I am passionate about providing outstanding quality of care for
babies and young children, and take great pride in seeing children learn, grow
and achieve.

I have a great understanding of the importance of the early years in a child’s
life, love children and am keen to give them a good start, with the
opportunity to grow and learn in the environment where they feel happy and

I believe that a child’s successful journey starts from very early education so it
is extremely important to provide a setting where children have an enjoyable,
fun learning experience and develop their skills and knowledge for future

Thank you, I have spoken to most parents already and look forward to getting to know you better.
