I am Jill Nichols, I own and manage Dragon Friends Out of School Club. The club is in Wharncliffe Side Sheffield S35 and offers a wrap around child care service for children attending Wharncliffe Side school and nursery. I have been a registered Child Minder since August 2006. The business runs from my home where I live with my husband Michael and our three children Emily, Zak and Theo. I facilitate and organise planned activities for the children which are then delivered by myself and my team. Although a fair portion of my time is spent keeping the setting organised and running smoothly. I endeavour to stay very hands on with the children and try to always be present to welcome the children when they arrive and speak to parents when they collect.
I thoroughly enjoy being a child minder and love doing activities with the children. The real bonus of doing this for my job is that no two days are ever the same!
Carol Lawrence After School club Assistant
Carol has worked as an assistant at Dragon Friends since 2014. She has a lovely gentle manner with the children, is always ready to listen to any problems and gives cuddles freely. She is a great asset to the team!
Anne Clarke Breakfast Club Assistant
Anne has also been with Dragon Friends since 2014. She has an endless ability to play with the children and come up with new ideas to help develop their play. Anne does a lot of role play and never minds whether she is being poked and prodded as a patient at the doctors or pretending to be a dog, which seems to be a favourite of the younger children.
Anne is a familiar face around school as she also works there as a dinner lady and cleaner. We love having Anne here.
