I love working at Pre-school, seeing all the children grow. I have two children who both came to St. Eval Pre-school. I previously worked as a Nanny and in another Early years setting.

I've lived in Cornwall all my life and couldn't imagine living anywhere else. It's so nice to have the beach just down the road for a walk with the dog.
