Former PM impressed with passion and dedication in the early years  

Former PM, the Rt Hon. Theresa May recently paid a visit to Wise Owls at Maidenhead Day Nursery at the Braywick Leisure Centre to meet the team and discuss the importance of early years education.  May said of the visit, “It was great to visit Wise Owls at Maidenhead Day Nursery where I met with staff to discuss early years provision and spent an enjoyable morning speaking with the children. I saw first hand the genuine passion the Wise Owls team have for early years development and the care and dedication invested into every child in their charge. Early years development plays a pivotal role in shaping a child’s future, that’s why it’s so heartening to see Wise Owls providing first-class educational provision for local children, ensuring a strong foundation for their future growth”. 

During the visit, the former PM spent time interacting with children and educators, participating in a variety of activities that are at the core of our curriculum. These activities, designed to foster a love for learning and a deep respect for other cultures, showcased the innovative and caring approach Wise Owls Childcare take in educating children in the early years.  

Tanya Galitzine, owner of Wise Owls Childcare since 2000, was pleased to share the nursery with the former PM. “It was lovely to give Theresa May a behind the scenes look into our world and witness the important foundations being laid by our early years practitioners. As a company, we are determined to reward exceptional standards by investing in staff benefits that value the contribution of staff, such as a comprehensive loyalty programme and continuous professional development to enable staff to progress their careers in the early years.”
