Friends join forces to open Windsor's newest pre-school

A pair of neighbours are embarking on a new venture by opening a pre-school in Windsor.

Laura Woodcock, 33, and Kristin Wright, 36, both of Alexandra Road, will run Puddleduck Preschool which will open on September 5.

The pair took on the challenge after community pre-school Little Rainbows closed its doors after nearly 20 years.

Both women had children at the nursery and wanted them, along with other children, to continue attending pre-school at All Saints Church Hall in Frances Road.

Puddleduck will offer ‘fully funded’ places for three and four-year-olds, which all families are entitled to for 15 hours a week.

Kristin was a deputy headteacher at a London primary school while Laura was a college lecturer for hair and beauty.

Both have decided not to return to their previous jobs in order to focus on the nursery.

Laura said: “It was so funny how it came about.

“I heard that Little Rainbows was closing and I wanted to do something different, I felt like a change in my career.

“I had a meet up in the park with Kristin and the children and within a month were pretty much ready to go.”

The pre-school held its first open day on Wednesday.
