Hello, my name is Viv Setchell. I live locally and am married with 2 children, or should I say, ‘young adults’ as they are now aged 18 and 21!
I am a Teacher and I currently also work 2 days a week in a ‘job-share’ in a Reception Class. Of all the ages in the Primary school that I have taught, the Reception stage is by far my preferred one, so I am really excited to now extend into the preschool age range too!
Having brought up my own two boys and taught across the Primary age band, I know how very important these first gentle steps into learning are. I know how highly skilled preschool staff are, in maximising children’s play experiences and in laying these early foundations. I also know how vital the role of parents and carers are in the whole process too. I very much look forward to being part of the Longworth Preschool team, to meeting you and your precious children, to playing alongside them and supporting them in their learning!
