Hi, I’m Marina, “Mrs Moro” for the children and yes I’m not English, I’m Italian!  I’ve been the deputy at Earlybirds for over 5 years but my experience with this preschool goes back a little bit longer. When we moved to England my two boys (now 15 and 11 years old) joined respectively Newtown Soberton Infant school and Earlybirds Pre School.  As a parent I volunteered in the committee and also in the school and preschool  setting and that has given me the experience and opportunity to reflect on a change of career.  I went back to study at the university of Winchester and achieved a Post graduate Certificate in Early years (level 6) and  the government- endorsed Early Years Professional Status (EYPS).  I’m thoroughly enjoying my time in preschool: the parents and the children are wonderful and we work extremely well as a team.

During my time off I like to travel with my family, read books, ski, cook delicious Italian food and take our new rescue dog for long walks.

Jane Waller

Pre-School Assistant

  • Early Years Professional Status - Level 6
  • First Aid 
  • With over 20 years experience    

I have been involved with Earlybirds for 18 years. I held the role of Earlybirds Pre school leader from September 1998 - July 2016.

I was responsible for the smooth running of the pre school and worked four days a week with the children. I have a wealth of experience working with young children and love being part of their growth and development.

From September 2016 I will continue to work with the children for two days a week as a pre school assistant.
