We are situated on the grounds of St Michael's School in our purpose built Elliot Buildings, and are a charitable organisation that is registered for 42 children.
We provide full time education and care for children aged between 0 and 5 years, 51 weeks of the year. Alongside this we also run a breakfast club, after school club and holiday club for children aged between 5 and 11 years.
The Trust believes in a flexible approach and we will do our best to accommodate your personal requirements.
Hi I'm Sarah the Nursery Manager at Lizard C.H.I.L.D. Trust (LCT). I became involved with LCT as a parent in August 2005. I began working for LCT firstly as a Nursery Assistant, then progressing to Room Leader, then Deputy Manager and now Nursery Manager, gaining my qualifications for each level along the way.
I am passionate about the education, care and support we deliver to our children and their families at the Nursery. At LCT we feel it is an honour and privilege for parents to entrust us with their children. I pride myself on the fact that parents comment on the “homely and welcoming environment” we provide and how “confident the children are”.
I believe in order for a child to learn and be involved their well-being needs to be high and therefore their Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED) is the foundation of all children’s development. That is why it is important to ensure my staff have a high level of training, qualifications and experience to provide a rich environment for the children to learn through play. It should be fun, effortless, and exciting at this age, they have a long time ahead of them to be sat in a classroom.
At the Trust we embrace the whole family approach. We offer different kinds of support depending on what the family & child needs. We are all unique and so is the support we offer.
You will find me a very approachable person, whom parents find it easy to talk to and therefore I am able to offer guidance, support, or just a listening ear to off load - our cuddles are free!
"I am proud to be part of this Charity. As I have said many a times, I’m like a stick of rock, if you cut me down the middle the words LCT would be running through me."
