Current Members:



Chair: Gina Cooksley 


My name is Gina and I'm mum to Max, who is in Reception at primary school and Olivia, who already has her place reserved to start in 2021. I wanted to join the committee as Dauxwood will be a part of our lives for a number of years so wanted to help the pre-school in any way I could. I originally worked as a florist before working at a local garden centre in charge of the gift department. I'm currently a stay-at-home mum (which seems much harder than working full-time)!


 Treasurer: Lucie Baxter 


My son Charlie attended Dauxwood and has just moved up to Year 1 and his little sister Eva has just started. Before children, I worked in finance for a large banking organisation. I love being on the committee because I am passionate about children's early years and I want to give something back. It’s also lovely to be part of such a great team.


 Secretary: Alex Nicholas

I have two children - Lola attended Dauxwood and is now in Year 1 and Ffion has just started. My professional background is in hospitality. It's a great feeling being part of a team of like-minded individuals and contributing to the community. I've also struck up some great friendships from it. 


Trustee: Kelly Charman


I have been a secondary school teacher for 15 years, teaching in Horsham and now in Billingshurst. I have 4 children, two are in their 20's. My 8 year old son Harry went to Dauxwood and my husband and I were so happy with the care he received, it was a no brainer to send Jack too. Dauxwood Pre School is a special place and I wanted to show my appreciation and support by becoming a member of the committee and help where I can.



Trustee: Loreen Brown

I'm a self employed accountant and mum of 3 beautiful girls, Molly (19) is off to University in September, Keira (3) is currently at Dauxwood and loves it, and I have Ronni (1), who will be starting next April. I am so happy and humbled to be part of this wonderful pre-school. 




Trustee: Samantha Mouland

My name is Sam and I am mum to 2 boys. My eldest, Nathan, went to Dauxwood and we were so thrilled with the care and attention he was shown and our youngest, Callan, is now thoroughly enjoying his time here too! Being part of the committee has helped me feel more involved with the way Callan learns, it's so rewarding to be part of such a great team!
