Deputy Manager and Safeguarding Lead

Hello, my name is Sally Edgington.  I am married with two children, girls of 14 and 8 respectively.  I have had a varied career since leaving school and moved into childcare in 2013 when I opened my Ofsted Registered Childminding business following redundancy from my role as project manager within a web development agency.  I chose to follow my dream of working with children and babies, having discovered a passion for both ante natal and post natal care following the birth of my eldest daughter.  I trained as an Antenatal Teacher with the NCT and taught antenatally until my childcare business took over, at which time I studied and passed my QCF Level 3 in Playwork, as well as other child-related courses including baby signing with TinyTalk.


After a couple of years back in industry, I have realised that my heart is still with working with young children, helping them learn about the world around them and reminding myself what a wonderful world we live in should we remember to see it through a child’s eyes.  Having worked with Pam previously when we were both running our childcare businesses, I am very much looking forward to seeing how a good preschool is run and utilising the knowledge I have gained as both a mum and a childminder to help improve an already successful preschool as Deputy Manager.  I am also enjoying getting to know all the children and helping them to enjoy their learning through play whilst at Longworth Preschool.
