Janet is the founder of "Patcham Village Pre-School registered in 2015 having evolved from the long established Church Hill Pre-School which served the local community for 15 years. Patcham Village Pre-school opened up in larger premises on London Road in the centre of the bustling village and soon became established as a large part of the community of Patcham; one which acts as an extension to the pre-school in providing exciting experiences for children.
During this time Janet gained a BA in 'Professional Studies in Learning and Development' at Brighton University and was part of only the second cohort nationally to gain 'Early Years Professional Status'.
As well as running Patcham Village Pre-school, until recently she was also employed by Brighton University as a Reflective Practice Tutor and assessor for the 'Early Years Professional Status' and 'Early Years Teacher programmes'. But reliquished both posts to spend more time in the new setting 'Patcham Village Pre-school'.
Janet has lived in Patcham for 31 years and is married with two grown-up children, two granddaughters and a grandson.
Her continued professional development is vast and includes gaining a nationally recognised qualification in Understanding Autism.
