Hi, I’m Marina, “Mrs Moro” for the children and yes! 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. My two boys went to Earlybirds Pre School and later to Newtown Soberton Infant school.  As a parent I volunteered in the committee, 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 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, take our rescue dog for long walks and practise yoga.

I am delighted to have been welcomed into Earlybirds Pre School this year. I have previously worked as a deputy manager in a children's day nursery, and whilst my children were very young, spent time caring for the elderly too. 

My two boys are now 18 and 12 years old and I'm really enjoying my time working with the children, parents and friendly team at Earlybirds.

In my spare time I enjoy spending precious time and holidays with my family and walks with our dog Ruby.
