Ann - Early Years Practitioner.  Ann joined the Pre-school in May 2013 having previously worked at a Pre-school in Camberley. Ann started working with children when the youngest of her 3 children started at a local primary school.

Donna - Early Years Practitioner.  Donna began working at the Pre-school in September 2017 as a volunteer.  She was already qualified to NVQ Level 3 and had previously worked in a day care nursery and as a Nanny and then spent some time bringing up her own young family.  After a brief spell volunteering we were able to offer Donna a job running lunch club and then a few months later she became a Key Person with us.








Susan - Early Years Practitioner.  Susan has been with the Pre-school since July 2016.  She qualified to NVQ Level 3 and has over 12 years experience within a day care nursery where she progressed from a student up to Assistant Deputy Manager.  Susan began by providing us with temporary cover but now that her own children are both at school she has taken on a permanent role as a Key Person with us.

Anupama or Anu, as we call her, began here in October 2018 and helps at lunch club each day as well as during some of our sessions and providing cover.  Anu previously worked as a support assistant for children with English as an Additional Language and so we already knew Anu through this role before she applied to work with us.
