The Team

This is the team here at St Oswald's pre-school.  All our staff are either qualified in childcare or working towards a qualification and undergo regular training to ensure that we are up-to-date and in line with the current thinking in our field.  All of our staff have a current Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Certificate.


Hello, my name is June and I have been working with children since I joined St Oswald's pre-school in 2004.  During my time here I have achieved Level 3 Diploma in Children and Young People's Workforce.  As well as being a qualified paediatric first aider with Epi-pen training, I have up-to-date safeguarding training, I am the lead professional responsible for safeguarding in our setting, management training and more specific courses such as maths in early years and schemas. 

I took over ownership of the pre-school in 2016, which I run with a fantastic team of enthusiastic, experienced and caring staff.  I firmly believe that developing good relationships with parents is key to ensuring that we work together to provide the best possible start for your children.  I live locally with my two grown-up children.


Hello my name is Rachel and I started working at St Oswald's pre-school in March 2015.

I gained my NNEB qualification in Childcare in June 1998.  My main interests are getting creative and messy with my two daughters and cake decorating.  In May 2016 I became the deputy manager and am enjoying my new responsibilities.

Hi, my name is Helen and I've been working at St Oswald's pre-school since 2014.  Since leaving college, where I gained my childcare qualification NNEB, I've always worked with young children at different settings.  I thrive off caring for and entertaining children.  I have been raised in Croxley Green but currently live in Sarratt with my husband and 2 young children.  Helen is currently away on maternity leave.


Hi, my name is Sam and I joined the team at St Oswald's Pre-school in September 2017 and I am really enjoying being back working with young children, watching them grow, learn and develop.  I have a Level 3 Cache Diploma in Child Care and Education, also Paediatric First Aid training.  I have worked with children since leaving college in 2005 in many settings and as a nanny for 8 years until I became a mother of twins.


Hello, my name is Polly. I am Level 3 qualified and have paediatric first aid training. I have been at St Oswald's Pre-school since May 2017 and I am thoroughly enjoying myself! I love helping children to develop and get ready for 'big school'. I live locally with my family.


My name is Tanya and I started working at St. Oswald's Pre-school in September 2018.

I have lived in Croxley Green for 10 years with my husband and we have two children aged 5 and 7.

I love getting involved in all the fun activities with the children at pre-school.  In my spare time I enjoy Pilates and keep fit.


I joined the team at St Oswald's Pre-school in February 2019. I have enjoyed working with children in educational settings for nearly twenty-eight years. Being influential in their learning and development and in helping children to feel happy, safe and valued is extremely rewarding. I have grown up in Croxley Green and still live locally with my husband and two grown up children.
