Mary-lee Haslam


I am the Deputy Manager with over 30 years experience in early years. The majority of these have been in a managerial position.

Whilst I am responsible for assisting Tracy Landy in all care and educational aspects I am also completely hands on and work within all classes throughout the year, role modelling good practice in a support and mentoring capacity. This involves supervision and induction of staff members ensuring staff members are fully aware of Clowns expectations.

Additional duties include recruitment, management of staff teams and liaison with parents. In addition I oversee all Two Year Progress Checks and meet with parents to discuss their child’s development. I am also the Clowns Senco responsible for coordinating the learning journey for children with special educational needs and disabilities. I work in partnership with their parent/carers and any outside agencies to ensure all children reach their full potential.
