Qualified and Caring Staff
Alongside some specialist teachers, the core Early Years team at Dover College includes Chloe Bean (in Reception) together with Tracey Mills and Clare Caskie (Early Learners). Here is a little bit about each of them…
Miss Bean says…
I studied Primary Education at Canterbury Christ Church and chose to specialise in ICT and Art. On leaving university I was appointed the Reception class teacher at Dover College Junior School where I have worked since 2008. During this time I have visited the Ukraine on a charity project with the school. I enjoy gardening and cooking which are skills I have used to introduce as after school activities.
Mrs Mills says…
After having my own four children I discovered a passion for early years and undertook my degree course in Early Years Education whereby I gained a 1st Class Honours Degree. I have twenty years experience and have been at Dover College since 2008. I am a qualified trampoline coach and judge and have a specific interest in sport.
Clare Caskie – Foundation Degree in Early Years
I have been working in Early Years for a few years and have gained much experience from working in a variety of settings. During this time I have continued to train and have gained qualifications in SEN and an advanced certificate in Play Work. I have a child here in the senior school and have worked at Dover College since 2009. I am currently undertaking training as a forest school leader and enjoy all aspects of the outdoor environment.
