Miss Marchant (Red Reception)
I have a passion for teaching young children. I was first trained as an Early Childhood Teacher, then later went back to further my study as a Primary Teacher in my home town in New Zealand. I worked for 3 years as a team leader of a private preschool, then decided it was time to further my career and I made the move to the UK. Since arriving I have taught in nursery, reception and have worked in various supply teaching roles around London and Stoke-On-Trent. This move also even led to a role in the Channel Islands. Through these experiences I have come to realise that my passion for teaching is still with Early Years and am very excited about working with the children and families in Reception this year.
Mrs Parsons (Blue Reception)
I have been lucky enough to have taught across the key stages, teaching in Key Stage One and Two before being given the opportunity to teach within the early years. This was when I discovered my passion lies within the early years, supporting and enabling children to learn and develop and nurturing their curiosity. I have taught within Reception and Nursery and am enjoying being part of the team at Ash Green.
