Ami Hay

Manager Level 5 in Early Years

Hello my name is Ami and I have been part of the Avon Small Saints family since 2016.

I have been preschool manager since September 2018 and have thoroughly enjoyed implementing positive changes to the learning environment for the
children in our care.

I have worked in Early years for many years and have gained many qualifications starting from my NVQ 2 up to my level 5 in leadership and management. I absolutely love working with children and seeing them thrive and grow. I also enjoy learning and gaining new skills along the way.

In my spare time I love spending quality time with my family, going on country walks with our dog Paddy and relaxing with a good book.

Level 3 Practitioner

Hello I’m Stacey. I work within the rainbow group. I have always wanted to work with children from being at school myself and so I went to college where I began my childcare journey. Since then I have gained my level 3 in childcare as well as level 3 in play work and level 2 in children’s mental health awareness. I have been in childcare now for 16 years and enjoy watching the children as they grow and learn through having fun whilst at preschool. I love telling stories and singing songs at preschool and you’ll often find me where the messy activities are as I love to explore
and get creative!

In my spare time I enjoy listening to music and helping raise funds for preschool by selling donated items on our Facebook page “Netheravon grab a bargain sale items” where I have proudly raised over £2500. I also help out as a volunteer for the Army Welfare Service running play sessions for families in my spare time as I enjoy organising and implementing ideas and activities within the community.
