Tracy

Co-Owner / Director

I am the joint owner of Hutton Pre-school. 

I qualified with an NNEB in 1994 and have held a variety of early years roles. In 2012 after working as an early years practitioner and as an unqualified teacher within a school setting I decide to take the plunge and undertake my teacher training. 

 

I hold a first class honours degree in Childhood Studies (SEN Specialism) and my teaching background is Early Years Foundation Stage and KS1.

 

I am passionate about the local community and want to contribute to it. I strongly believe that given the right environment children can learn through play and exploration. I hold the belief that children gain a love of learning through exciting opportunities and that learning does not need to take place sitting at a desk. In 2018, whilst working at Stifford Clays Primary School I won the outstanding teacher award at the Thurrock Education Awards for my innovative teaching style. I like to think outside the box and create learning opportunities in all experiences.

Donna

Co-Owner / Director

I am the joint owner of Hutton Pre-school.

I have held a variety of childcare positions including working as a nanny and in school nurseries. Over the last few years I have been a driving force behind introducing enquiry based learning and continuous provision into the Year One classes where I have been working. Tracy and I worked closely at Stifford Clays Primary School in both EYFS and KS1.

 

I have a strong belief in outside learning and with providing children the opportunity to play in an exciting and free environment, incorporating loose parts play and in the moment planning.

Paige

Pre-school Manager, EYFS Teacher

I have undertaken my Early Years Teacher Training at Middlesex university. I hold a BA Hons in Childhood studies and joined 2 Little Birds full time in October 2020 to complete my teacher training.  Prior to this I was working in a local primary school as well as running the wrap around provision at 2 Little Birds since its inception in April 2019. Having achieved my degree I will be moving to Hutton Pre-school when I return from maternity leave.

I love working with children and have a firm belief that children need a strong foundation in Early Years to ensure they succeed in their future.
