Meet The Team
Paula is a mum to three gorgeous grown up children aged twenty five, twenty two and ten years old. She has many years of experience in working in childcare starting out as a nanny and a childminder and then working in nurseries/preschool with children aged 3 months to 5 years.
Paula finds working with children is incredibly rewarding, she really embraces the challenge and loves the fact that no two days are the same. Working as a member of a team with caring staff and seeing children settle and then flourish to be ready for big school is her favourite part. During the week Paula is in pre-school but on the weekends and evenings she enjoys gardening /reading and spending quality time with her 10 year old.
Early Years & SEN
Katey joined Hambledon Preschool as an apprentice in 2021 and did vocational SENCO courses alongside her studies. She has three children of her own and lives in the village so knows the setting very well! Katey loves the beach in all weathers, and has taken up a hobby of surfing!
Dana joined Hambledon Pre-school in 2018 and is much loved by all the children. She is qualified to level 3 BTEC in children's learning and development. Dana always wanted to work in childcare and loves to interact with the children from a young age and see their progression through to starting primary.
Outside of work Dana likes to braid and style hair.
Archie joined Hambledon in September 2021 and has a Level 4 in Early years foundation degree.
He went into childcare to try and make a difference in children’s lives as he has always felt strongly that the early years are fundamental to their whole journey.
Archie loves listening to music and playing his guitar and hopes to use his musical attributes within the preschool!
