St. Georges pre-school is privately owned by myself, Stephanie Sturdee. The pre-school, until recently was a charity and was committee run. After it ran into difficulties I decided to close the charity and make it private it so that it would not close. I have children (Timothy and Gabrielle) - Timothy attends St George's Primary School and Gabrielle St Augustine's College.
I have a Bachelor of Education and am part way through my M.A in early years. Although I am in as management, I enjoy interacting with the children and being part of the team. I have high standards and welcome any comments and suggestions. I am pleased with the high ratio of adults in this group. This ensures individual attention to the needs and development of each child. The regular staff are:
Jane Docherty, Manager/Play Leader
Jane's passion for the past twenty years has been helping to give young children a love of learning and a strong belief in themselves. Alongside this she has moved around the world as an army wife, bringing up four children. Jane is now settled back in Wiltshire enjoying simulating and inspiring the children at St. Georges pre-school to be confident, curious and independent learners.
Claire is married and has two grown up boys. She has worked at the pre-school now for 10 years and enjoys working with the children and families. Claire holds a NVQ level II.
Full lists of courses attended by the staff are available on request and on the notice board.
