Our Team

Preschool Team



Laura is a qualified teacher with over 10 years experience of working with young children. With a specialism in Early Years and Key Stage 1 she has taught Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. After having her own children, Laura decided that she would like to go back into Early Years and rediscover her love of working with young children. With a passion for play based learning and the understanding that children make the most progress when they are are fully engaged in following their own interests, Laura has helped to develop the way Great Doddington Preschool delivers the curriculum.
