Parent Introductions:

Name: Tom Ramsay
Room where my children are based: Marvellous Monkeys (Pre-school) – Evie Ramsay & Toddling Turtles (Older babies) – Ben Ramsay
Number of years at Little Rascals: Since the opening in 2012
My vision for the PPA:
I am keen to be involved as much as possible in my children’s lives and I view their time at Nursery positively. However, I would like to be more involved with the nursery, after all Little Rascals are helping to care for, teach and shape my children’s development. Our kids are not in full time (only 3 days a week) and as such I think it is easy to feel disconnected from what has been happening, planned events, themes or even learning goals, so when the PPA was launched, I saw a chance to help improve this aspect.

Name: Sarah Hart
Room where my children are based: Eager Elephants (2-3’s) – Jack Hart
Number of years at Little Rascals: 2 Years
My vision for the PPA:
I’m delighted to be part of the PPA to build stronger connections between the nursery & parent/carers. I see the PPA being the feedback voice of parents, to support future improvements and ensure Little Rascals is the best possible environment for our little ones to grow and develop.

Name: Natalie Spivey
Room where my children are based: Marvellous Monkeys (Pre-school) – Joshua Harris
Number of years at Little Rascals: 2 Years 11 Months
My vision for the PPA:
To enable the parents to have a voice to the Nursery Management Team. To bring a different perspective to enable the Nursery to become the outstanding facility I believe it is becoming and will be.
