Hannah - Preschool Manager and Designated Safeguarding Lead

Hannah joined the Alphabets family in 2018 and has loved every minute.  She enjoys watching the children in their care grow, develop and get ready for their next step at school, whilst learning through play.  Hannah says that each day is filled with fun and laughter and she feels honoured that she is part of the childrens' learning journey.

Hannah has a young son who has recently started school and keeps her busy.  In her spare time she loves listening to music and enjoys attending music concerts and festivals.


Amanda - Deputy Manager

Amanda has been working at Alphabets since 2013 and enjoys watching the children learn and develop through play.

She has two daughters of her own who keep her very busy.  In her spare time she enjoys running and going to the gym.  She also loves going to the cinema and walking her dog, Smudge!


Mandy - SENCo + BECo practioner

Mandy has been working at Alphabets since 2011 and her Childcare journey started 6 years prior to that.  In Mandy's SENCo and BECo roles she offers extra support in areas of educational needs, disabilities and personal social and emotional development.

Mandy feels being a key person is an important role in your child's life.  Developing a strong bond helps them feel secure, confident, ready to learn and develop friendships and key skills for school.  Mandy says "I knows that each child is unique so I use different stategies to support individuals.  They all learn at a different pace and every achievement I see puts a smile on my face.  That's why I work in Childcare."

Sarah - Practitioner

Sarah has an NNEB in Childcare and started working at Alphabets in 2017 after her youngest son started school.  She works 4 days a week and finds the role really rewarding.  She finds it extremely fulfilling to watch a child achieve and loves being a part of their learning journey.

Sarah is married and has two young sons.  Outside of pre-school, she enjoys spending time with her family, shopping and reading.
