Meet the Cheddar Team

Bobby Baldwin (Manager)

Hi, Im Bobby and I’m the Nursery Manager at Little Adventures Nursery. I I hold a level five foundation degree in early years and I have 10 years experience working with children aged six weeks to 5 years. I have worked into previous nursery settings where I have experienced a variety of job roles within the early years sector and worked my way up from an apprentice to management as well as safeguarding officer inclusion coordinator , first-aider and fire officer. I believe all children learn through play and benefit from a stimulating and exciting environment where they are given plenty of opportunities to develop and progress. 

I live in Wedmore with my partner and dog. In my spare time I enjoy dog walks, shopping and watching films. 

Abbie Slater (Assistant Manager)

Hi I’m Abbie; I have a Level 6, BA Honours Degree in Early Childhood Studies with seven years experience. I have a deep passion for teaching the Early Years Foundation Stage, especially Expressive Arts & Design and have always had the desire to help shape happy, healthy minds of all children during the most crucial, early years of their lives. I adore being creative through all kinds of arts and crafts. I LOVE all animals (I have two dogs, two South African land snails and thirteen chickens!) In my spare time I love to explore and listen to music and also have a passion for face painting and anything that sparkles!

 

Sharon Waters (Room Manager)

Hi. I'm Sharon and I am a qualified Nursery Nurse with over 20 years experience working in Early Years.

I also have a love of literacy and storytelling. 

I live in Cheddar with my husband, two teenagers and two cats. In my spare time I enjoy reading, watching movies, knitting and crochet. I love learning new skills and I am currently learning to play the banjo and studying Welsh.

 

Charlotte Weare (L3 Apprentice)

Hi, I’m Charlotte and I am an apprentice nursery nurse. I enjoy working with children and helping them to develop and grow through activities and play. I am particularly interested in the importance of outdoor play to help physical development, as well as enabling children to explore and understand nature and to develop their imagination. I am also very interested in sensory activities to help children explore and investigate, as well as to help the development of motor skills and language. I live in Wells and in my spare time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I am looking forward to learning lots of new skills and gaining my level 3 qualification.
