Kim Sallis


I am the proud owner and director of Little Wisp preschools in Eastleigh, Hampshire. The preschool started with one small setting in Chandlers Ford that has grown in four years to our amazing settings across Eastleigh and Bishopstoke. I am passionate about childcare and Early years training to a Level 5 as well as having a first-class honours degree in Bachelor of Arts. I am a mum of three amazing unique children, one of whom has autism. I believe in children being treated by staff with respect, love and outstanding care and partnerships with all families. Your children are treated as if they were our own and everybody who works, plays and is part of Little Wisp preschools is part of the Little Wisp family. The success of Little Wisp is through the hard work, commitment and passion from the managers and staff of each setting. We look forward to welcoming every family to our unique settings and pride ourselves on our compassion and love for what we do.

Manager of Little Wisp Bishopstoke

I have worked in childcare for 13 years. I have four boys and I registered as a childminder when my children were young so I could work from home whilst still enjoying time with them. After achieving a Level 3 in Childcare, Learning and Development I moved on to working in a preschool where I have been a key person and Senco before moving up to Manager. I finished my degree in Childhood Studies last year graduating with first-class honours, which I'm really proud of. My favourite part of my job is being outdoors with the children and getting messy!
