Mrs Rachel Kinchin - Early Years Practitioner
Rachel has a very solid background in pre-school and early years education, having done voluntary work at Compass and running the former pre-school with Bridget.
She said: ‘Early years education is about building the children’s personal, social and emotional skills and communication skills - those essential skills of being able to share, take turns and interact with their peers and building up language through talking and sharing stories.
‘The building is geared up for these children, we have better facilities and a self-contained outside space which is brilliant too. Having the younger ones is still quite new for us and a lot of the older students take on a mothering role and like to look after the younger ones.’
