Hi, my name is Lynn and I have been working at Winsley Acorns Preschool since 2012 and I am thoroughly enjoying my role as a childcare practitioner and key worker. I am a fully qualified primary teacher and I have worked at Wiltshire College for the past twelve years teaching childcare and education to level three. I am a very proud Nana to Oscar, Erin and Orly. I regularly practices yoga and will be starting a Yoga Foundation Course in September to intensify this practice further.

Hi I'm Janie and feel so blessed to have been working with the wonderful team and children

at Winsley Acorns since Spring 2016. 

I started teaching  in schools 24 years ago and have recently returned to work after taking time out for my family. I have a lovely son and daughter called Luke and Jess who both got married in the last two years and am overjoyed to have recently welcomed my first grandchild, little Edward! I enjoy yoga and country walks with my rescue dog Teddy.

Hayley, Early Years Practitioner



Early Years Teacher Status




I’m Hayley and I joined the Acorns team in 2017. After working with the children on a temporary basis, I made the decision to retrain and recently completed my PGCE at Bathspa University.


I was so proud to achieve my Early Years Teacher Status, with the support of Acorns and I love being able to do this amazing job.


I love to run and keep fit, and have four little boys of my own who keep me very active and very busy!
