      My name is Rachel and I have worked in the Pre-school Room at Marigold since joining the team in 2017. I became lead Practitioner last year and have enjoyed rising to the challenge such a role creates. I started my Career 32 years ago when I trained as an NNEB and have worked with a variety of age groups during that time. I really enjoy open ended activities with the pre-schoolers and using a holistic and heuristic approach to learning allows me to create a great range of opportunities for them to learn.
