A group of children squeals as their hands and feet find a way to catch up to their excitement. They repeat the catchy song lyrics back to Sophie, their entrusted daycare assistant. Sophie has been nurturing children's imaginations during their time at Central Daycare for over six years. She shares, "When I was little, the manager, Michelle, used to look after me. When I finished college, she said to get in touch, and that's how I started out here."
Located in one of the most disadvantaged wards within the UK, Sophie and her Central Daycare colleagues strive to support the health and development of every child who walks through their doors. Before COVID safety lockdowns, they looked after upwards of eighty children a day.
