The Team

Helen Walters

My name is Helen Walters and I have been the Manager of Weaverham Pre School for 16 years In addition to my managerial role I have qualifications and extensive experience in Makaton, Speech and Language and ELSA which is a Social and Emotional Literacy Support Programme and I have recently gained my Forest School Leader qualification.

I believe that play is an integral part of early learning through which children develop the cognitive, social and emotional skills they need to take them successfully into school and beyond.

Our wonderful outdoor areas provide the opportunities to explore and learn through their own unique interests and ideas. In my spare time I like to go for walks, read and spend time with my family, taking day trips to the beach.

Rachel Oates
Deputy Manager

My name is Rachel, and I am the Deputy Manager and Room Leader in Butterflies, working with our 3-4 year olds. I have been working in Early Years for 15 years and I have recently gained my Forest School Leader qualification. I love to provide a rich tapestry of activities to enable the children to develop their own interests and find new and different ways of expressing themselves.

My spare time is devoted to my family including my 2 young children and we spend a lot of our time outdoors.

Lisa Kay
Early Years Practitioner

My name is Lisa and I have been working in childcare for over 30 years I love seeing children grow and develop and enjoy being part of their pre-school journey.  I think that Weaverham Pre-School is a great place both for children and staff. I think that the outdoor provision is amazing and provides ample opportunity for children to develop in all areas of learning. Outside of Pre-School I enjoy spending time with my 2 daughters, going for walks and bike rides and going out for meals.

Faye Martin
Early Years Practitioner

My name is Faye and I work in the Caterpillar room and feel very privileged to be part of such a great team. Every day is fun filled and child led, and I love seeing the children grow in confidence. Weaverham Pre School has a very special place in my heart; my children all attended and have many happy memories. I am mum to three beautiful children. I have a 9 year old daughter and twins who are 7. They are my world, and we love spending time playing board games, reading books and making the most of the outdoors

Beth Gittings
Early Years SEND Practitioner

My name is Beth and I have over 10 years’ experience working with children in Early Years and Key Stage 1, particularly those children with additional needs. I am a fully qualified Early Years SENCO and I believe that early intervention is crucial in helping children achieve their full potential across all areas of learning. I also enjoy spending time exploring the outdoors with the children and Weaverham Pre-School provides plenty of opportunities to do this. Outside of Pre-School I like going out with my friends, family and visiting new places. 

Jenny Marshall
Qualified Teacher

I am a qualified Primary School teacher who specialised in Early Years. I have also been a Special Educational Needs Co-coordinator for over 20 years and supported a range of schools and children across Cheshire. During my teaching career I was approached by parents in the village of Weaverham to open a Pre-School as there was little provision available at the time. This is when ‘Weaverham Pre-School’ was born and has been operating for over 17 years. I continue to support the Pre School in a management capacity and supporting children with additional needs and inclusion. In my spare time I am an avid reader and enjoy gardening, walking my cocker spaniel and spending time with my family.
