Nicola - Chairperson

I have three children and all of them have attended and loved Pre-School. I joined the Pre-School Committee as a general member in 2016, then took on the role of Vice-Chair for 2 years and in October 2020 I became the Chairperson.  I joined to support the Pre-School and to meet other parents, and I have made some good friends along the way. I also enjoy supporting the great team who look after our children. Prior to having children I managed a Bid Team for a large multi-national organisation and gained a lot of Project Management experience in that time. I have a degree in Economics.

Kate - Treasurer

I joined the Committee as Treasurer in 2017 when my eldest son was at Pre-School to meet other parents and to support the amazing job the dedicated staff do in looking after the children, making sure they all enjoy their time at Pre-School and are prepared for the transition to school. I currently work part-time as a management accountant at Nottingham Trent University and prior to that was a commercial analyst at a manufacturing company.

Joanne - Fundraising Officer

I joined the committee in 2017 when my eldest daughter started Pre-School, I initially joined so I could support my daughter's journey but have really enjoyed meeting other parents and getting to know all the staff.

As well as being a mum of two girls I am a director of a curtains, blinds and soft furnishings company and prior to that a knitwear buyer for M&S.


I was born in South Africa and moved to the UK when I was 13 years old. I practised as a certified chartered accountant for 8 years in the UK, South Africa & the Caribbean - before joining the family tutoring business in Beeston, so that I could spend more time being a Mom. I have a son who joined the Pre-School in Sept 2020 and another recent addition! My son absolutely loves Pre-School, especially all the mud & outdoor play. As a fairly new Committee member, I am excited to support the Pre-School and be a part of their growth.


I joined Attenborough Church Pre-School in 2016 but have been working in childcare since 2005. I have an NVQ Level 3 in early years qualification alongside an NCFE classroom assistant and British Sign Language qualifications. I work with children because I like to see their achievements as they grow and develop and to smile together with them every day. At Pre-School I particularly enjoy organising various cultural events for the children. I am also a committee member, I have 2 children and in my free time I enjoy cooking,walking and yoga.


I have been working in childcare since 2007 and have twin girls of my own. I was Chair of my former Pre-School for several years and also a School Governor at Chetwynd Primary Academy for 7 years. I have been at Attenborough Church Pre-School since January 2015. My qualifications are NVQ Level 3 Childcare Learning and Development and NCFE Level 3 Teaching Assistant. I am Language Lead in Pre-School and I am a Staff Committee Member.
