  • Michelle Marshall – Level 6 Manager / Safeguarding Designated Person / Health & Safety Officer and SENCO
  • Amy Keith – Level 6 Early Years Practitioner
    • I am an early years trained primary school teacher with many years experience across both key stages. After taking a break from teaching to stay at home with my two young children, an opportunity to work at Killinghall Preschool arose and I have since loved being part of a dedicated team that enriches the lives of the children who come to play.
  • Suzanne Voakes – Level 3 Early Years Practitioner
    • I have over 16 years experience in Early Years, I am level 3 qualified and looking to work towards my level 4/5 and 6. I have two young children of my own, both have attended our preschool. As a practitioner at Killinghall Preschool, I care for and play with the children, providing experiences to extend their learning and development. I love my role here at Killinghall and as a rural setting, we have such a warm, family-like atmosphere that is inviting for  children, parents and carers.
