  • Meet the team : Emma

    Hi, my name is Emma. I joined Hartest pre-school in January 2024, I have got a level 3 in early years and have worked in education and early years since finishing Uni, where I studied Architecture! I previously worked in a forest school, and I love being outside and splashing in muddy puddles!

    I have got three children who keep me busy, and my youngest currently attends Hartest pre-school too. I have also got a dog called Alfie and a tortoise called Tilly. When I am not working I enjoy growing vegetables and flowers in my garden, doing lots of different crafts, paddling down the river in our canoe and going away in our campervan.

    I look forward to getting to know all about you when you join us at Hartest pre-school.

  • Meet the team : Victoria

    Hi I’m Victoria and have joined Hartest preschool with a background and passion for supporting children with SEND. I believe that all children should have the best opportunities especially in their preschool years, and am passionate that each child has the ability to succeed in their own individual way given the right support.

    I have neurodivergent twins myself so the parenting journey I’ve been on hasn’t always followed the typical path, but we’ve had many adventures and fun along the way! We love visiting zoos together or taking our two English bulldogs out for a walk in the woods.

    I enjoy listening to podcasts, running and cake! I can’t ever say no to a slice of lemon drizzle or Black Forest gateau!

    I look forward to getting to know you and your family.
