Our Noah's Ark Family 2021

Our staff team 


I have worked at Noah's Ark since 1996 when my youngest child left to go to "big school". During that time I have worked my way through the qualifications list, achieving BA (Hons) Early Years​ and Qualified Teacher Status. I have taught Reception & Year 1 in a village school one day a week for the last 5 years.

 I am the setting Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator and Manager.

Annabel is our newest team member; both her aunties have worked with us so she feel like family already. She enjoys studying and is building on her Level 3 childcare qualification.


My 2 children attended Noah’s Ark and thus led me onto my career path with playing, supporting and teaching young children. I joined the team in 2010 as an Early Years Practitioner (level 3) and have gone on to achieve a BA (Hons) in Young Children’s Learning and Development. I am designated lead person in safeguarding and also responsible for registration. I enjoy sharing my love of baking and gardening with the children and when harvests are bountiful also sharing the fruit of my labours from my allotment!.


I am a qualified teacher with a specialism in Early Years and have worked at the local Children's Centre.  I have 2 girls who are both at a local schools and we've moved on to the family farm where we have spent time rebuilding our house. I hope to do some Forest School training  and in the meantime I'm working on providing weather topic boxes and introducing puppets to our children who qualify for extra funded support.



I have gained my level 3 qualification. I am very busy with 4 children and the family farm but I still manage to be actively involved in my church. I also find time to give respite care to a young lady with special needs.
