Nursery Prospectus ‘What we offer’
Miss Critchlow (Nursery Teacher)
I am new to the Ash Green team this year (2020). Prior to my appointment, I undertook 4 years at university to study Primary Education with specialisms in EYFS and Science. After graduating, I worked in 2 schools across Derbyshire and Cheshire East. I am now looking forward to teaching the fabulous children at Ash Green.
I have a passion for outdoor learning and look forward to undertaking Forest School sessions with my class. In regards to my own personal teaching philosophy, I believe every child deserves a chance to shine. 🌟
