Pre-School Lead - Mrs Helen Pool


Dear Parents and Carers,

I am delighted to introduce myself to you as the Pre-school Lead at Cherry Orchard Pre-school, Little Cherries.  

I have a wealth of experience, having spent many happy years working in Early Years settings, predominantly pre-schools, most recently St Clement’s Pre-school, which was twice judged to be Outstanding by Ofsted in my time as manager there.  I have also worked as a Reception Class teacher, but my real passion lies in working with three and four year olds, hence my excitement at leading the Cherry Orchard Pre-school team.  I will be encouraging children to develop a love of learning, through a stimulating environment both indoors and out.  Children will lead their learning by following their interests as well as being exposed to new experiences and opportunities, supported by experienced and passionate staff.  There will be plenty of opportunities for imaginative play, creativity and construction (we may get quite messy), music, rhythm and rhyme, exploration of number and shape, gross motor and fine motor activities and so many stories and books

I have lived in Worcester for 30 years, and am married with two grown up children, and 3 grandcats.  I also have a beautiful campervan called Annie, and enjoy holidays and weekends away in her. 

I look forward to meeting with, and getting to know, the children and families of the community, and to showing off our super provision.

Best wishes,

Mrs Helen Pool
