The Committee is a team of parents, elected by other parents, who volunteer to help manage the running of our Pre-School. Each member of the committee brings their own skills, experience and energy to the table. We are all parents like you and we would love you to join us! Contact us for more info!
Lauren has previously held the position of Pre-school Chairperson and has returned to support us on an interim basis until a current parent in able to volunteer. An actively involved member in many aspects of the local community, Lauren has a wealth of valuable experience of working with children. Her daughter currently attends Sherington Church of England School. She has two sons who attend middle and secondary schools in Newport Pagnell.
In addition to her own childminding business, Lauren has also previously run Sherington Youth Club. She frequently supports charitable and community events at The White Hart.
Tom has worked for Argos and now Sainsburys Argos for over 14 years in various different financial and planning roles.
Recently Tom's son Charlie started at pre-school and he has already made many friends. Tom enjoys running, cycling and Sunday roasts with the family.
Before having my two children, I had a 14 year career in HR working for a range of national and multinational companies. It was ultimately work that brought us to the area in 2011. By chance we set up home in Sherington and have since bought a house and had our children here. Our daughter was born in 2015 with a rare genetic condition which meant a lot of time in hospital and a lot of change for us as a family. During this time we came to really value living in Sherington where we had so much support and continue to do so. It is a fabulous place to be.
Bea is now at Sherington CE School and James will hopefully start at the pre school in September. When the chance to join the pre school committee came up it felt like a great opportunity to give something back to the village that has given us so much and also get the old grey matter working again!
Emma has a background in Marketing and currently looks after the marketing and social media channels for a very well known food brand. Being a relative newbie to the village and loving it, she hopes to contribute to the community where possible. Her son George is new to preschool and settling in fast. Emma loves cooking, yoga and heading out for nice long walks in her spare time with the family.
Suzanne joined the committee in October 2020 at the AGM, after her son, Cobie, started preschool in the September. She has previously been chairperson of another preschool that her older daughter attended, and as part of this role undertook in-depth training in safeguarding and many other areas. She is an advocate of "in the moment planning", the approach taken by the pre school that puts the individual child at the centre of their own learning.
Suzanne has previously been Deputy Director for a charity in Northamptonshire, and prior to that worked as a Training Manager for a charity in London. She understands the unique needs of charities and has experience of securing funding from trusts as well as a range of other fundraising activities.
