Vicki Egarr

Vicki Egarr

Owner Little Me & Little Muddy Me Preschool

Having worked as a registered childminder since 2012, as a nanny previously and in Day nurseries, I have accrued 24 years’ experience of caring for children. My Ofsted report rated my childminding setting as ‘Outstanding’. I believe that children’s needs are best met when space and resources allow them to play and learn.

I enjoy inventing new activities to engage and excite little minds. I have a particular interest in sensory play, children’s wellbeing and helping children to explore the outdoors.

I have a BA honours in childcare and Education and Level 3 forest school.

Admin

For over 20 years I have worked in the customer service and administrative roles within the business sector.

I had been wanting to take these skills into a different sector and when the position at Little Me preschool presented itself in 2019 it felt perfect, this then grew to include Little Muddy Me in January 2020. 

I really enjoy being part of the team that makes Little Me and Little Muddy Me the perfect place for your little ones.

Level 3 Apprentice

I joined Little Me preschool in September 2021 after deciding to leave college when Vicki gave me the opportunity to finish my Level 3 qualification as an apprentice. 

I’ve always wanted to work with children, and to watch them grow up to be amazing little characters whilst building relationships with them. Watching them grow and develop in a positive and stimulating environment is the reason as to why I put my heart and soul into my role at Little Me so that the children can get the best start in life.

I joined Little Me preschool in September 2020. I am now working towards my level 3 in childcare to enable me to develop further skills to better understand children’s strengths and abilities.

After studying special needs to support my children, it opened my eyes into a totally different world, and I felt really excited to utilise my personal skills and experience to support others.

I have been in childcare for 27 years. I am a mum of 2 and have worked in day nurseries, as a childminder, in schools and preschools. I have lots of experience with a particular interest in children with SEN and who need behavioural support.

I have a passion for children’s learning and development, and I believe children are all different and should be treated that way.

Abby

Abby

Level 3 Apprentice

My name is Abby and I’m 17 years old working towards my level 3 in Childcare. I came straight out of school and was looking into childcare apprenticeships when I came across Little Me preschool. As soon as I started, I found a great passion for helping children learn and explore, this grew into outdoor learning. I decided to move over to Little Muddy Me preschool to continue this. I found that working outdoors was so calming and peaceful. The children loved to be free and explore every area of the forest. I hope to continue learning more about childcare and outdoor learning as my apprenticeship continues.

We are based in a forest area next to Bray Lake. If you put a postcode into a satnav it will take you to the wrong location.

When you turn onto Monkey Island Lane, (off the A308) follow the road all the way (past Summerleaze concrete plant on your left, Bray Marina on your right) until you reach a fork in the road, take the left fork towards Bray lake. You will go over a small bridge and our car park will be on the left. You will see a large 6ft high wooden fence at the end of the car park and this is the location of Little Muddy Me.
