Highmoor Nursery School's Staff


I have owned Highmoor Nursery School since September 2007. I am the Registered Person, Safeguarding Lead and Nursery Manager.

I hold an NVQ3 Qualification in Childcare and Education and I am also an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Bankers.

I am married with two fabulous children and I enjoy keeping fit and foreign holidays.


I joined Highmoor Nursery School in September 2015 and I work with the Robins and as the setting SENCO.

I am originally from Kenya, but travelled to England where I qualified with an NNEB Norland Diploma in 1988, first working with a number of families in London and then in Hawaii. I also have a Bachelors degree in Nursing. I live with my son Will and dog Lizzie. I enjoy running, keeping fit and spending time with friends and family.


I started working at Highmoor Nursery in February 2015 and love it! I am Level 3 qualified in Early Years Education. I work with the Robins group, guiding and supporting the youngest members. I have a lovely daughter called Chloe who also attends Highmoor Nursery. I love spending time with my partner and Chloe, family and friends, and am very passionate about horses.


I have worked at Highmoor Nursery School since November 2013. I am married to John, with three lovely children and I live in Stoke Row. I qualified with an NNEB/Norland Diploma in 1989 and went to London to nanny for four years. I then worked for a nanny recruitment agency for almost six years and went on to work at Checkendon Primary school as a teaching assistant to the foundation stage children.

My interests are firstly my family. I love being outdoors - walking, playing tennis. I also enjoy cooking & films.


I completed a Foundation Degree in Early Years through Oxford Brookes, holding a Level 5 in Childcare, and have worked in a number of settings locally before joining Highmoor Nursery School in September 2016. I have 3 older children in their late teens and early twenties and 2 younger children who attend Checkendon School. I work alongside Claire in the Woodpeckers group.


I own Caterpillar Music and have taught music at Highmoor Nursery School since October 2014. I now also work for the Nursery two days each week whilst I study for my NVQ2 qualification in Childcare and Education. I work within the Woodpecker group and I am really enjoying working with the children and watching them develop.


I joined Highmoor Nursery School in April 2016. I am married and have three children. I have been a full time Mum for the past 6 years. Between 1995 and 2008 I worked as a Nursery Assistant in a preschool in Newbury and a Teaching Assistant in Woolhampton and Whitchurch Primary schools. I love working with children and enjoy helping out wherever I can at Nursery.


My name is Helen and I'm a qualified Nursery Nurse with over 20 years experience. Before having my three boys, who are now 16, 13 and 11, I managed Treetops Nursery in Henley. I have worked at various other preschool settings, and also as a Teaching Assistant for the reception class at Kidmore End School. I also help my husband in his Estate Agency business.

I worked at Highmoor for 18 months in 2008 and am looking forward to returning.


I have worked at Highmoor Nursery School since April 2014. I am NNEB qualified and worked as a children's nanny for many years, prior to getting married and having my own two boys. At the moment I am working with the Robins group and run a weekly cookery session with them, as well as helping out elsewhere if needed. I love spending time with my family and friends as well as completing arts and crafts and cooking.


I am the owner of Mini Trailblazers and I provide a number of sessions at Highmoor Nursery School on a Monday and Friday. Mini Trailblazers was set up by myself in October 2012 and I have been working with Highmoor Nursery School since 2013.

My passion is to provide opportunities for children to develop their athleticism at an early age and further their physical capabilities, giving them a head start in their sporting life.
