Who are Rocketeers…
Rocketeers was formed by Amy Graham & Ciara Keane with the aim of providing high quality wraparound childcare in schools, in and around Horsham. With years of professional experience in both Childcare and education, we’re committed to providing parents with competitively priced, convenient childcare that’s not only fun and engaging but also educationally stimulating. We also work closely with the schools to ensure the activities we provide compliment and reinforce their educational ethos.
Being mothers ourselves we understand the importance of finding the right care for your children. If you’re a parent who chooses to or needs to work you can do so in the knowledge that your child is cared for and educated in a safe environment where fun and learning is promoted equally. We feel passionately about this and we want to provide somewhere that the children love coming to, not just a place to wait while their parents or carers work.
More about us…
After gaining a BA (Hons) in English & Related literature and an MA by Research in English Literature Amy went on to complete a PGCE in Primary Education. She holds QTS and has 12 years teaching, including 10 years as SENCO. Her experience includes class teaching in KS1 & cover teaching across the school from years 3 – 6. She was also designated teacher for LAC and worked closely with both learning mentor and the child protection officer to ensure children’s safety and wellbeing. Amy brings with her a breadth of experience and the ability to provide care which is consistent in its delivery and supportive to the child, parents and the school.
Ciara has previously worked as Business Manager for a large nursery in Horsham. As part of her remit, she was head of parent liaison and was responsible for policies and procedures, risk assessments and all paperwork to ensure the nursery was compliant at all times. This included the health & safety of the children and staff. She made sure that the nursery and its staff were always on high alert in relation to all policies and procedures. She carried out regular spot checks to demonstrate consistency in management of the policies.
Both Amy & Ciara have safeguarding experience and believe in the health and wellbeing of every child. Rocketeers is primarily about care but we will also help develop each child in our care and seek to ensure that each child is excited to attend and parents are reassured each time they drop off& pick up. Between us, we have been through 6 Ofsted inspections so are more than aware of the processes involved in providing educational childcare of the very highest standards .
