SusieSusie Gerhartz: Supervisor and Safeguarding Lead; Paediatric First Aider.

I have a B Ed (Hons) and have worked at the pre-school since 2006. I have one teenage daughter. My favourite things at Harpsden are our outdoor mud kitchen and watching the children operate the hoses when the Henley Fire Engine comes to visit!

Sarah_1Sarah Tipple Deputy Supervisor and SENCo; Paediatric First Aider.

I am NVQ Level 3 qualified and have worked at Harpsden since 2004. I have two teenage children. My favourite things at Harpsden are making playdough pizza, helping the children build a pirate ship, role-play, and watching the pre-school vegetable patch grow each year!

Jenny_1Jenny Slay: Senior Pre-School Assistant; Paediatric First Aider.

I have worked at Harpsden since 2011 and have over 14 years’ experience in early years. I have two children of my own, which although time consuming, is a great qualification to stand alongside my NVQ Level 3. I love reading stories with the children and my top moment is letting the butterflies free in the field each year.

HelenAlix Tong: Pre-School Assistant; Paediatric First Aider.

I am NVQ level 3 qualified and have been at Harpsden since May 2013. I have five years’ experience in other settings. I have a teenage daughter and a son who has just reached his twenties (!). I love nurturing the budding artists in creative activities and discovering the woods with the next generation of intrepid explorers.

 

Jo_1Jo Gosden: Pre-School Assistant; Paediatric First Aider.

I am NVQ Level 3 qualified and have worked in childcare for several years. I have twin daughters aged 10. I love supporting the children on their journey through pre-school in preparation for their transition to primary school. My funniest moments at Harpsden are joining in with music and movement with children and peers alike!

 

LibbyLibby Johnson Pre-School Assistant; Paediatric First Aider.

I have a PGCE in primary education and am enjoying working full time at the pre-school after starting at the beginning of the year. I have two children, a son of 15 and a daughter who is 18. My favourite activity so far was watching the children’s reaction to the animals that came to visit us recently.

Lucy_1Lucy Weatherston: Administrator.

I have three daughters (two at primary and one at secondary school) and a wealth of experience from pre-school committees and the school PTA. My favourite things at Harpsden are the lovely rural setting and the friendly staff!

Rebecca_1Rebecca Quinn
Pre-School Assistant; Paediatric First Aider.

I am NVQ Level 3 qualified and have worked in settings in Henley for a number of years. I started at Harpsden in April 2016. I have two primary school age children, a boy & a girl who love playing sport. I enjoy the great outdoors at Harpsden, I love to watch the children as they run outside in the field. Reading to the children is one of my favourite activities along with lunch – listening to their social chat makes my day!
