Hi I’m Louisa, the Preschool manager. I have worked in childcare for 20 years. I joined Hedge End Village Hall Preschool as manager in September 2007. I have my NNEB diploma and Level 5 in Leadership & Management. When I'm not working at the Pre-School I'm running around after my 2 boys!

Hi, I'm Kat and I'm qualified to Level 3 in Early Years Education, and have completed SEN training. I've worked in childcare for 11 years. When I'm not at work I enjoy walks with my Boxer dog, and spending time with my family. My favourite thing to do with the children is baking.

Hi, I’m Rachel. I am the deputy manager. I have my CACHE level 3 diploma, first aid and health and safety. I am also the 2 year old officer within the pre-school and I have worked in childcare for 14 years.

When I am not working at Hedge End Village Hall Preschool I enjoy spending time with my family and my little girl such as being outside, swimming and being creative.


Hi, I’m Alice and I have recently completed my level 3 in Early Years Education. In 2014 I left college with 5 A Levels but after volunteering at the pre-school in 2014 I realised this is the profession I wanted to be in.

Whilst I am not working at pre-school I like to spend time with my friends and family. I enjoy travelling to new places and trying lots of new things.


Hi, I'm Chrissie. I am qualified to Level 4 in Early Years and have completed SEN training. I love getting messy with the children and being creative. Outside of work I enjoy family time, particularly going to the beach and swimming.
