In my role as administrator, I provide support to the Preschool staff and Committee.  My role includes, managing the waiting list, invoicing, processing free entitlement claims and other adhoc administrative tasks.  Before taking on this role, I held the role of Treasurer for the Preschool Committee for over 5 years.  I love being a part of such a brilliant Preschool.  I have 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl who have all attended the preschool.  In my spare time, I love to cook, especially baking, and I work off the calories by running, cycling and chasing round after my kids.
