Meet The Team

Horringer Pre School employs four members of staff, all of whom have a recognised Early Years qualification.


Special Educational Needs is very important to us , We therefore have a designated, highly qualified member of staff who is responsible for SENCO.  All staff have regular DBS checks, continued professional development and first aid training.


We pride ourselves on a long-standing team of dedicated staff, who all love and care for the children, comfort them and have real passion for their work with young children.

Stephie says "I love the way your children come into our pre-school happy and confident, I genuinely find it humbling that you share your most precious little people with us. Helping them grow into confident individuals ready to take on big school and life is truly what makes me tick!!  


To unwind I listen to music, take photos, enjoy long countryside walks with my Fox Red Lab Barney and spend quality time with good friends and my family".

Michelle (aka Chel) likes building relationships with the chldren helping them feel happy, secure and free to explore the environment having fun.  At work she loves to visit the children's 'Hotel TV' which costs her a mere two pence and a credit card.


Outside of pre-school Michelle's three teenage boys keep her very busy. She also enjoys taking her golden Doodle for long walks.
