Sally Hayes, Preschool Assistant

I obtained a degree after leaving school in BA Hons Geography and then qualified as a primary school teacher with early years specialism in 2003.  Since gaining my qualification I have taught all primary age classes in Scotland and England but the majority of my experience has been working with younger children.

I believe that it is vital to invest in early education to provide children with a caring and nurturing environment in which they can flourish, learn and develop important social, emotional and physical skills and St Mary’s provides such a setting.

I am a mother of three children and my younger two attended St Mary’s.  They blossomed in their time here and had a very positive start to their learning journey.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and keeping fit.
