Meet the Team

Debs Powell - Apple Trees Club Manager
I’m Debs Powell. I have three children and have been childminding since 2011. I lead a church parent and toddler group and co-lead a preschool children’s church group on a Sunday. I am a Governor at Curry Rivel Primary School. I am passionate about outdoor learning and enabling children to maximise their life chances through opportunities, compassion and encouragement.
Jane Snow - Session Supervisor
I have been involved with Curry Rivel School for 10 years, ever since my own son was a baby. I have worked in Early Years for the past 6 years and I also work with the school aged children at lunchtimes; so all the children know me well.

I hold an NVQ Level 3 in Children’s Care Learning & Development. I am qualified in communicating with children with speech delay, including sign language. I am passionate about the inclusion of all children, in play-based activities, regardless of barriers.
Caroline Boaler  - Session Supervisor
Hello, I’m Caroline. I have a thirty year old daughter who lives and works in Coperhagen. I worked in Mansfield Library for eighteen years and especially enjoyed my time in the Children’s library. I have an Open University certificate in Social Sciences. I believe that engaging with our natural world promotes good health and well-being and am keen to encourage the children to participate in the outdoor activities offered at Apple Trees.
Emma Myhill  - Play Worker
My name is Emma Myhill. I am a qualified Nursery Nurse and LSA. In addition to working at Apple Trees I also work in the financial sector, volunteer at Curry Rivel Primary School and am the secretary for the school PTA. I believe that every child should be given support and opportunities in the indoor and outdoor environments to reach their full potential as an individual.
Charlene Hunsperger  - Play Worker
Hi, I'm Charlene Hunsperger and I have 4 children Adam, Luke and twin girls Anna and Ruth. I have been a school Governor for nearly 5 years both within Curry Rivel School and our previous school in Wiltshire. I grew up in Huish Episcopi and left home at 17 to join the Royal Navy, this was something I had wanted to do since I was a child of 9. I was lucky I had support and encouragement from my family and people around me - I believe this is so important for children so they can feel confident, safe and happy to share their ideas and dreams and be encouraged to fulfil them.
Jemma Crowhurst  - Play Worker
Hi, I'm Jemma. I have two daughters at Curry Rivel Primary School and have volunteered for the PTA for the past year. Before joining the Apple Trees team, I co-founded and ran a voluntary parent and toddler group in Langport for three years. I enjoy helping to make Apple Trees a fun, engaging and safe place for the children to be outside of school. I am keen to share with them my enthusiasm for both creative and outdoor activities within the club setting.
