Our Team

We have three highly experienced members of staff, who are passionate about providing high quality care to the children at 345.  They are nurturing, creative, stimulating, and hugely supportive of the whole family.
Sharon McAlpin
Lead Practitioner

I grew up in South Africa and moved to London nearly 15 years ago. I taught pre school and reception for many years in Kingston upon Thames before moving to Alresford 4 years ago. Since then I've been a full time mum to my 3 children, but now am looking forward to getting back into teaching! 

Tracey Pond
Deputy Lead Practitioner
& SEN Co-ordinator

I joined the team in 2010 when my youngest child was still attending.  My qualifications include NVQ 3 in Children's Care, Learning and Development.  I have a son at University plus two young children, three dogs and recently got two tortoises and so enjoy being outdoors!

Anna Pearce
Assistant

Both my boys attended 345 where I enjoyed becoming involved as a parent helper.  I also became a committee member when my youngest son started.  I joined the team of staff in June 2016.  My qualifications include NVQ3 in Early Years Care and Education and 13 years experience working with children within a Nursery Setting.  I enjoy camping, football and spending time with my family.
