      Hi my name is Joanne Gaskell, known to the children and most of the staff as Miss Jo-Jo! I have been at Marigold since 2003 and have had the opportunity to work with all the age groups at the setting. In 2017 I became the lead practitioner in the Tweenie Room, a role I now share with Miss Sharon. I find this particular age group fascinating as they have so many new skills they want to learn to use. The enjoyment I get from helping them develop their individual personalities and mould those skills is fantastic.

      Personal Profile:
      • Qualifications:

        NVQ Level 3 in Childcare and Education

      • Family:

        I am married with three boys, who keep me very busy

      • Interests:

        We have a very busy home life, as I spend many hours chasing my tail with the boys. When I do have spare time I love to shop, eat out with friends and family and go to the cinema.

      • What I love about my job:

        Every day is different and challenging and the children are such fun to be with. I love reading stories to them and engaging them in music and movement sessions.
