At Brockenhurst Pre-School we give children the opportunity to play in the fresh air, we foster their ideas and care for them in a stimulating environment.

I was brought up in New Zealand where I have worked across both early years and nanny settings. I really enjoy teaching young children including teaching sailing using my RYA qualification. I have three children of my own and am delighted to be working in such a unique setting as Brockenhurst Pre-school.

Montessori International teaching diploma.

I have two gorgeous boys and a few small animals. We live in Hordle and love being nestled between the Sea and the New Forest. I have always wanted to teach young children and believe that allowing them to learn through play is the best way. My particular strengths are art and craft.
