Beverly Bracegirdle, Preschool Assistant

I qualified in 1981 with a NNEB childcare qualification.  This in-depth course ensured I had a secure knowledge of child development from birth to primary school age children which has been invaluable throughout my career in education.    

I’ve worked at St. Mary’s Preschool since 1997 but prior to this I worked as a nanny, at a local authority nursery and as a teaching assistant at Cherry Tree Primary School. 

I’m a mother of two children and in my spare time I love dancing.  I’m happiest at preschool when preparing arts and crafts opportunities for the children.  I love to create displays showing off all the children’s fantastic work and helping to enhance our learning environment.
