WHO AM I?

Faye Samways

Since I was young, I’ve had a passion for education and childcare. I’ve been gaining valuable experience throughout the years, and I am ready, willing, and able to provide your children with the care they need. Whether I’m babysitting for a few hours or I become a more consistent presence in your child’s life, I always provide a nurturing, stable, and safe experience.


After graduating from the University of Chichester with a BA (Hons) in Education, I gained experience in primary schools before finding my passion in Early Years. To further my education I studied for a Diploma in the Montessori Method and graduated as a Level 3 Early Years Educator. My experience includes working in a nursery for 3 years and working up to Deputy Manager and Special Educational Needs Co-coordinator. I have also worked for the Local Authority in Children’s Centres, running groups for families and specialising in communication and language. I started Play & Bloom to pursue my passion in early years and to build groups in our community.
