Meet the committee
Chairperson, Cheryl Packer – Mummy to Jamie-lee and Jessica-rose. We have recently moved to Drayton from Buckinghamshire and my eldest daughter loves preschool, which is always a positive start. I have taken the position of chairperson primarily to get involved in the running of preschool, aiming to help develop the best setting and delivery of childcare we can and to meet other parents mad enough to join the committee as well. I work part time as a local NHS GP. Outside of this I enjoy spending time with my girls and walking my doggie.
Treasurer, Dan Hoyle – My name is Dan, husband to Katy who works here at the preschool. My son Jasper loved his time at this preschool and has just moved up into Drayton Primary School. I joined the committee in July 2017 to take on the role of Treasurer. The position was struggling to be filled, so I offered to take on the role to prevent from what I think is a fantastic preschool from closing. I work full-time at the ASDA Distribution Warehouse in Milton Park. I'm a big computers, gadgets and technology fan and anything that has an engine and wheels!
Secretary, Kerry Centre – My name is Kerry and I am a very lucky Mummy to 3 boys – William who is 11, Ellis who is 8 and Lucas, 3, who is currently attending Drayton Preschool. I took on the role of Secretary as I have a vested interest to keep preschool up and running. I have a professional background in Early Years and currently work for a family support charity in Blackbird Leys called Home-Start. I love spending time with my family (this mostly involves me stood by the side of a football pitch!), shopping, reading and holidays.
Comittee member, Mandy Pickering – My name is Mandy. I am married to Mark and am mom to our 4 year old daughter Naomi who is currently attending Drayton Preschool. We have lived in Drayton for 3 years now and love living in the village. I am very lucky to be a stay-at-home mom which turns out to be a full-time job in itself but I love it. I love anything crafty particularly sewing, spending time with my family and watching movies.
