About the Staff

Ben Rhydding Pre-school Playgroup’s team has a wealth of experience and qualifications.

All children are welcome at our pre-school. Our team is pleased to support children with special educational needs, disabilities and children who speak English as an additional language (and the agencies working with them).

Our team has a wealth of experience and qualifications and many of the staff have worked here for a number of years.

Our Leader Tricia has worked here since 2001 and has a Level 3 Diploma in Pre-School practice. She is SENCo for the setting and Health & Safety Lead Practitioner.

Helen, our Deputy Leader, Imy our Early Language Lead Practitioner and Jill  were all Primary School Teachers with Degrees and PGCE’s between them.

All our other Practitioners have Early Years qualifications:

Katie and Janelle have recently completed Level 3 Diploma in Early Learning & Child Care training, (2015).  Jo has nearly completed her Level 3 Diploma too.

Hannah has a Level 2 in Child Care and development. She is also our Lead Practitioner for Safeguarding and Assistant SENCo.

Helen (N) is our Office Manager and joined us in April 2013 and is thankfully a wiz at Excel! She also assists the Committee with the Admissions & Treasury roles.

Our Domestic Practitioner, Chris, has been with us since 1993, and Lana, who has been with us since 2002 helps out in a variety of roles at the Pre-school from admin to sorting and domestic duties, baking and gardening.

We also have Heidi, who is also teacher trained and helps us out at short notice and has some temporary hours as we get busier during the academic year.

Our minimum ratio of one adult:four children under the age of 3 and one adult:eight children 3+ (not volunteers) means we can pay individual attention to promoting your child’s development, education – and fun!
