Our dedicated team have one thing in common, and that is their passion for childcare. From experienced Nursery Practitioners to qualified teachers & Apprentices. Our staff are qualified in EYFS, Safeguarding, First Aid, and hold qualifications in childcare up to level 5.
Asiya’s drive and passion for Childcare stems from her wealth and experience gained from the Health and Social Care sector. She worked in Independent living, leading a number of openings for assisted living across the UK, as well as managing a team of consultants recruiting for registered managers and care practitioners.
In 2015 this drive and passion led to her qualifying as a Nursery practitioner and opening Yaqadoodle Childcare supported by her partner Mo, working from their home which was converted into a fully functional nursery. They provided a great service caring for children from early years, promoting values such as Unity, Support, and Growth.
By Summer 2019 through word of mouth the client list had grown substantially, and there was a need for commercial premises. In September 2019 Yaqadoodle Childcare Academy was formed and the first branch opened on Bennett Street, adopting the same principle “To provide high-quality affordable childcare, which meets the individual requirements of every child”
