Experienced Qualified Staff

Collectively the Hambrook Hedgehogs team has experience working in many early years settings which means that we have learnt from a variety of experiences and come together to create what we consider to be a great place for preschool children to thrive.

Hambrook Hedgehogs is run by an experienced and well qualified management team headed by Zoe Hendy who has a Master's Degree in Early Years Education.

With three other staff educated to degree level the team is made up of six staff with a minimum of Level 3 Early Years qualifications.

Our well qualified staff also have experience of attending relevant early years training including health and safety, safeguarding and child protection, equality and diversity, food hygiene, behaviour management and forest skills.

All staff have a full paediatric first aid qualification approved by Ofsted.

In addition to hands on preschool experience, the team also has a wealth of experience in staff management, coaching and training staff and business organisation and management.

We also have experience of being parents ourselves and seeing our own children attend preschool and progress onto their next steps in education.
