Carol is awarded Teacher of the Year

carolFollowing a career spanning 30 years at Plaistow Pre-School, Carol Krol has been recognised as ‘Teacher of the Year 2013’ at the Spirit FM Local Hero Awards held at The Avisford Hilton Hotel earlier this month.


On the night, the Lead Practitioner at the Pre-School was presented with a beautiful award and a cheque for £200 that was given to DEBRA, Carol’s chosen charity.


Carol has seen generations through the Pre-School and is much loved by the preschoolers and their parents.  Vicky Miliam, the Mum who nominated Carol for the award said “We felt Carol should be recognised for her outstanding contribution to the village in which she lives and works with such boundless enthusiasm. She works so hard without seeking praise. Carol Krol is a truly special lady.”


What makes Carol so special is her amazing knowledge and understanding of each child on every level. At the end of each day, Carol can meticulously recall exactly what has happened with each child. She is extremely helpful in giving practical ideas on how to support their learning and development at home, which ensures a happy time at Pre-School. She has an instinctive and intuitive way of ensuring each child’s happiness and helping them to prepare for primary school.


Emma Thornhill, Plaistow Pre-School Chairman said “Carol has made a unique and tireless contribution to Plaistow Pre-School and she is an integral member of the local community.  She has such a genuine, caring nature which comes from her heart.”
