When I visited and interviewed Jamie Wilson, Deputy Headteacher of Everton Nursery School and Family Centre, I sensed his passion to give children the best possible foundation for life. Everton has the highest unemployment in Liverpool, so families deal with multiple challenges.
Jamie told me: "Our mission is to enable children to be lifelong learners. To have the ability, the confidence, the resiliency and the independence to go on to bigger and better things."
