I’m Lesley Lane, the Qualified Teacher here at the Children’s Centre.

I have an honours degree in Primary Education after studying for 4 years in order to be a primary school teacher.

I taught for several years in state schools with children from reception up to year 6.

After having my own two children I helped to run first aid courses for nurseries, pre-schools and primary schools. I then returned to teaching, working one-to-one with special needs children including those on the autistic spectrum and with language delays. I also worked as a supply teacher for various state and private schools in Surrey.
In my role as Qualified Teacher within the Christopher Robin’s Children’s Centre I enjoy supporting the implementation of the new Early Years Foundation Stage, and supporting children in their transition to school. In addition to this I am involved in running the ‘Play and Learn’ sessions for parents and children within the Cranleigh reach area and delivering our Parenting Puzzle courses.

I have previously managed a Pre-School within a village location and I have worked closely in a voluntary capacity in a local Primary School.  I was also the chair of PTFA at my children’s Primary School and have been involved in various fundraising activities.

You can find me at our weekly Play and Learn session,  and I co-facilitate the Parenting Puzzle course.  I also do home visits for families in need of a little extra support.
