My name is Helen Mills and I have been the leader at Huby & Weeton Pre-school since September 2010.

I am NNEB trained in Childcare and Development, and have over 20 years experience as a childcare practitioner working with children in a range of settings.

I have 4 children of my own, 2 sons and 2 daughters. Watching them grow and develop is very rewarding and gives me great fulfillment.

I am currently the Chair of Governors at a local primary school, with responsibility for safe guarding.

I thoroughly enjoy my job, getting to know the children, working in partnership with parents/ carers to provide a warm caring welcoming environment where each child is respected and valued.

My name is Debbie Dean, I am Deputy Leader and have worked at Huby and Weeton Pre-school since 2011. I am proud to be part of a team that works hard to provide a safe, warm and happy environment for children in the early years.

I have over 10 years experience of working with young children. I previously worked at a pre-school in Wetherby and during that time I completed my CACHE level 3 diploma in pre-school practice which enabled me to take on a more senior role as joint manager.

Being a mother is hugely rewarding and watching my own two teenage children grow and change throughout the years has given me invaluable experience.

I enjoy working at Huby and Weeton Pre-school and I feel privileged to work with such lovely children and their parents and carers.

My name is Gabriella Brotherton, I am a preschool assistant.

I first started at Huby and Weeton Preschool in 2013 and have worked here in between raising my 3 boys who have all attended the Preschool. 


The most rewarding part of my job is watching the children grow and develop into young people.

I enjoy attending courses to extend my knowledge as a childcare practitioner.

My name is Danielle Wright and I am working towards a Level 3 Diploma in early years.

The best part of my job is seeing the children grow and flourish.
