Rachael Blything

Deputy Manager, Chestnut Nursery Schools The Diamond Centre

My name is Rachael and I am qualified with a DCE level 3. I have worked in childcare for over 12 years in a range of settings and ages. I started in a nursery as a room leader down in Sussex before deciding to do something completely different and went to work abroad for 10 years with a holiday company. Here I worked in the childcare department, working in different roles leading up to becoming a childcare manager for over 5 years, and in the winter season after working as head of childcare for several years became a hotel manager. When returning to the UK I knew childcare was my main passion as I have always enjoyed encouraging the children to become individuals and their own little person with personalities to match. I feel childhood needs to be enjoyed to the full and I like helping the children to do this by being part of it. In my spare time I take salsa classes which is lots of fun and I belong to my local rock choir group which I often enjoy performing with.
