Jane Chapman

Manager, Designated Safeguarding Officer, First Aider.

Hello, I’m Jane.

I first became involved with pre-school when I joined the committee when my two children were attending. I have continued to work here happily since. I have worked at Shrewton pre-school for 24 years and became manager in September 2011. I graduated from Bath University with a Foundation Degree in Early Childhood Studies.

I really enjoy being part of the children’s learning and always aim to create joyful experiences for them to treasure. In my spare time I love to spend time with my family and walk my naughty dog Lilly.

Fran Gay

Deputy Manager, First Aider

Hello, I’m Fran.

I have worked in several Early Years settings in Winchester and for Hampshire County Council social services, whilst bringing up my own 3 children. I went on to manage 2 pre-school groups (including of Durrington village hall pre-school in 2013) and during this time took the opportunity to further my own learning.

In 2004 I gained a Masters in Education with the Open University. My research was on language acquisition for young children. I have also enjoyed teaching foundation level courses such as; numeracy & literacy for 16-19 yrs at college.

In 2015 started working at Shrewton my best job so far!

In my spare time I like to run, spend time with my family and friends.

Bethany Chapman

Hi, my name is Beth Chapman also known as Jane's daughter. I've worked in childcare since I was 16. I've worked in a variety of different nurseries and different age ranges.

I've always been part of Shrewton Preschool due to my mum, so I'm looking forward to being a proper part of the team in September.

To many of the children I'm also known as Olive's mum, as my daughter also attends Shrewton Preschool, which she is really enjoying.


We regularly have students working with us, some from schools on work experience and some from college who are completing their childcare and health and social care courses.

All students have police checks where necessary and are monitored by the Manager and Deputy at all times.

All staff members have enhanced Police Checks before they are allowed to have any connection with the children directly.

The ratio of adults to children in our setting is a minimum of 1 to 6.

All Staff members are Paediatric First Aid trained, have attended Safe Guarding Children courses and completed Level 2 Food Safety for Child carers.
