I have worked in Childcare since 1995 and have been involved with Udny Station Pre-school and Playgroup since both of my children attended in 2005. I started working here in 2007. I relax by baking a lot and pottering in my wood workshop, and I also enjoy being outside.
Trying to get glitter in every craft and messy play activity!
Making sure all staff, parents and children feel happy and involved.

Hello I'm Lynsey. I have two children and lots of pets! I love to play with my ponies, and take part in arts and crafts!
I love to take part in arts and crafts, read stories and go to Forest Fridays!
Taking turns making snack, caring for the children and supporting their learning.
I don't have a favourite. I love them all! I have four ponies, a cat, a tortoise and fish.

Hello I'm Sarah, I worked as a nanny in Austria for a few years before becoming and English assistant in a kindergarten and after school day care. In my free time I love to be outdoors, cooking or making candles.
Seeing the children develop. Spending time outdoors.
caring for the children, supporting their learning and playing with them.
My name is Maria. I have two girls called Meredith and Beatrix. Beatrix came to playgroup here from 2014-16. I love sewing, all crafts and art and a really good book.
I live with my four children Willow, Alfie, Evie and Sam and my husband Marcus just outside Foveran. We moved there in May 2021 after moving up from Norfolk where I spent the previous 17 years. I trained as a primary teacher and have mostly spent my teaching career working in Norfolk in the Early Years. It's exciting to be working here in Udny station as I went to Cultercullen Primary School when I was little!
I love working with the children and especially enjoy reading stories and singing songs. I also enjoy being outside in all weathers.
I grew up on a farm and loved all the animals especially the baby lambs.
Pink and Purple.
Hello, I'm Lynsey and I have been part of Udny Station Pre-school and Playgroup in various roles since my son started in 2013. I started out volunteering as part of the committee as snack buyer and over the years I've also dealt with uniforms, parent rota and I was treasurer for 2 years before becoming a staff member as Finance Administration Assistant in 2018. Both of my children have attended the setting and absolutely loved their time here. In my spare time I enjoy going out for walks and you'll usually see me walking the local railway line in my crazy leggings.
I am responsible for providing financial reports to the committee and keep them up to date with the day to day finances of the setting, I also produce the invoices for any fees that are due to be paid. I also come in to the setting to help with snack and playing with the children when a staff member is unable to be in. If I'm not on the trips to lend a hand you will normally find me in the setting getting stuck into messy play!
Anyone who knows me would say it's making up spreadsheets.
I'm not sure if I have a favourite animal but I grew up with dogs and hamsters.
Purple, blues or reds.
