Angie Reynolds

Manager

I joined Orchard House in June 2014. I am a level 3 qualified practitioner.

I have two sons who both attended the Pre School several years ago so Orchard House will always have a special place in my heart.

Being a mum of boys, I spend most of my time on the side of a football pitch and on bike rides, but I love every minute of it!

When I get any spare time, I enjoy running and catching up with friends, in other words, I talk a lot!!

Hi, I’ve worked in childcare for 20 years. I’ve been working in private day nurseries but fancied a change.

 I have been at Orchard House since September 2019. In January 2020, I was lucky to be offered a full-time position. It has been amazing working with the lovely staff and children.

I am a former primary school teacher with 27 years’ experience in the education system. I am enjoying work at Orchard House since 2017. I am happy working with my little students, making friendships and seeing their progress and achievements, helping them to gain confidence and learning skills for the next steps in their big education journey.

I’ve been at Orchard House since 2014. My 9 year old daughter came here and loved her time here. I’m a qualified SENco and trained in the Wellcomm speech screening tool. I love music and movement and supporting the children’s learning and development through play. I’m also a Designated Safeguarding Person.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing netball.

Practioner

Hi, I worked as a student at Orchard House for a year until I qualified. At the end of that year, I was lucky enough to be offered a permanent position.

I am friendly and easy to talk to. I love to read, and I like to do messy play activities.

Hi, I’ve been at Orchard House since June 2018 and it is a lovely place to work. Although I’m based upstairs, it is so nice to hear the children laughing and singing whilst I work.

I deal with the financial side of Orchard House, so you have any queries on fees or funding, please email me on office.orchardhouse@gmail.com
