About Us

Herons' Preschool Waterbeach is located in a newly refurbished building at the entrance to the former army barracks in the heart of Waterbeach. It is a community based charitable preschool which previously operated as Waterbeach Toddler Playgroup.  After many years of searching and hard work from numerous committees and staff members we finally secured a building on the former army barracks which, thanks to the developers Urban and Civic and the County Council, together with a number of grants, has been transformed into a fantastic preschool facility with two large rooms, modern facilities and a wonderful outside space.


The Preschool is managed by a committee of superhero volunteer trustees. 


On 7 March 2022 we formally completed our transition away from Waterbeach Toddler Playgroup to Herons' Preschool Waterbeach when we became operational as Herons' Preschool Waterbeach Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO).  Our new charity number is 1195255 and Ofsted registration number 2674417.

Our trustee body comprises the following, all of whom will stand for a period of at least 2 years:

Chairperson:  Diane Kagoyire

Secretary: Sezen Dursun

Treasurer: Fernanda Cathcart

General Trustees:

Beth Pettit

Pamela Trebilcock

Sheila Burke

John Walsh

Swati Bhatia

The Trustees meet at least twice a term and are responsible for the management of the Preschool, setting fee levels and Fundraising.  It is a great way to get involved in your child's Preschool experience and meet other parents.  The trustees are re-elected each year at the AGM, however new parent members are welcome to join at any time during the year.  

Please contact any of us, or the staff, if you would like to become a trustee of the charity.  You do not have to be a parent of a child attending the setting and we welcome volunteers with a wide range of experience.
