Crystal – Head of Teaching and Academic


Safe Guarding Officer. SENCO

 Crystal is a qualified Primary School Teacher but her preference has always to been to work with pre-school age children so this made her the perfect person to lead our Badgers room when she joined us in September 2014.  Crystal’s training as a teacher enables her to understand and empathise with our children; therefore, allowing her to ensure they are as school ready as they can be which, having worked as a Reception teacher herself, Crystal is uniquely able to appreciate. Crystal is the personification of an Early Years Teacher being calm, patient and good humoured with her group whilst allowing the children in her care to develop and flourish to their maximum potential. Crystal got married to Andy in 2015 and their daughter Phoebe was born in 2016. Upon returning from maternity leave Crystal was promoted to the role of Early Years Foundation Stage Coordinator. In this new role Crystal assesses all the children in our care looking for possible gaps in their learning that she can then focus on with the children’s key worker as well as working with the practitioners themselves to ensure that they are consistently working to an outstanding level of Early Years practice. Crystal also takes on the role of nursery SENCO.
