June Deebank

Owner/Manager

Hello, my name is June and I have been working with children since I joined St Oswald's Pre-school in 2004. During my time here I have achieved Level 3 Diploma in Children and Young People's Workforce. As well as being a qualified paediatric first aider with epi-pen training, I have up to date safeguarding training. I am the lead professional responsible for safeguarding in our setting, management training and more specific courses such as, maths in early years and schemas. I took over ownership of the pre-school in 2016 which I run with a fantastic team of enthusiastic, experienced and caring staff. I firmly believe that developing good relationships with parents is key to ensuring we work together to provide the best possible start for your children. I live locally with my husband and two grown-up children.
