I am delighted to be on the board of Trustees for Alburgh with Denton and Harleston Preschool Nurseries. I have always had a passion for early years and believe that all children deserve to have the best start to their young lives and their education. Having worked in early years for 22 years, I retired in 2017 to look after my grandson to which I now have three grandsons to care for. I bring to the board of Trustees all of my years of experience to enhance the growth of the preschools.
I am Hayley I live in Earsham and I am married with 4 children. I have 3 grandchildren and one on the way. I have been a foster carer for the past 17 years and have fostered around 40 children. I have been associated with the nursery on and off for the past 17 years and have been a trustee since 2014.
My name is Amie Marshall and my youngest currently attends the Alburgh setting, after having my two older children also attend. I have extensive experience in psychology, mental health, safeguarding and social care as well as learning disabilities and autism. All of my children love attending the preschool and I have been continually impressed with their level of care and dedication that they show to the children, families and their staff. Being an active trustee member allows me to show my gratitude and support.
My name is Helen Whiting. I co-run a local small business and am mum to two children who attended the Alburgh setting from age 2, continuing into breakfast and holiday clubs as they went on to attend primary school. I know from personal experience the difference that the high-quality, affordable, flexible and inclusive childcare we experienced made in allowing me to continue working whilst accommodating my children’s and family’s needs. I became a Trustee because I’m keen to ensure all members of our local communities are able to benefit from such an important local resource into the future.
