How was Little Dots Daycare Born?
Little Dots Day-care is a day care nursery and preschool education establishment based in Witney, Oxfordshire. It was established in 2012 by sisters Clair Way and Lynsey Morris. Clair and Lynsey are equally passionate about little people developing into confident, happy and inquisitive Juniors.
Clair has over 25 years’ experience of childcare in a professional capacity, this coupled with Lynsey’s own childcare experience and management expertise makes them the perfect team.
Both Lynsey and Clair are hugely passionate about operating a high quality nursery where parents can be assured that their children are receiving the best education and care.
From young babies to toddlers and preschool infants, environments are created that are relevant to each age and educational stage. For Clair and Lynsey, being a part of your child’s learning journey and welfare is paramount.
Clair has a BTEC National Diploma in Caring Services (nursery nursing) and a Foundation Degree in Early Years Development, she has most recently gained her NVQ Level 3 as a Forest School Leader and Forest School First Aid.
Clair has over 25 years experience of caring for and developing young children, from working as a private Nanny and then moving into nursery provision, the most recent being as Manager for an Oxfam workplace nursery.
Clair is extremely passionate about child care and recognises the importance of her own professional development to be able to continue to offer high quality care. Clair has attended many courses to enable her to be responsive to the individual needs of children and to know how to provide an effective learning environment. Clair is also one of our designated safe guarding leader’s at both settings.
At the age of 18 Lynsey moved to New Jersey to become a Nanny for 2 young children for a year. Her career then developed into sales management before having her son in 2008, when she returned to Oxfordshire. Lynsey was made redundant so decided to become a full time mum.
Lynsey believes that her management experience and Clair’s child care knowledge makes them the perfect team for creating a new and exciting childcare facility for the town of Witney.
In 2015 Lynsey welcomed her second child into her family, who attended LittleDots right from the baby room until leaving pre-school to start school.
