Hi, I’m Tash. I’m your messy play queen! I love nothing more than seeing the children get messy whilst enjoying themselves (sorry washing machines!).

Since then, I’ve qualified at a level 3 qualification in working with Early Years children. I have a passion for the question ‘why?’, a love of explaining why we do what we do and why it’s important.

Hi, my name is Sian. I started at castle fields in November 2021. My background is in healthcare, but I’ve always had a keen interest in child development. Both my children started their early education here at Castle Fields and I’ve always enjoyed being involved with the preschool as a parent. Luckily when an employment opportunity arose, I was successful in my application. 2022 will see me working on my level 3 early years educator qualification.
