I have worked in Early Years for many years and have enjoyed every stage of my career, I started my journey as an apprentice and have since then undergone many roles such as a quality and improvement role, SENCo, training lead and Nursery Manager achieving Outstanding judgements. I am extremely passionate about children's mental health and well-being, and I am an advocate for therapeutic teaching and learning. I particularly enjoy taking on a mentor role for staff helping them grow, develop, and learn to become outstanding practitioners. I also come from a Forest School background and enjoy teaching children to love the outdoors, embrace the natural world and care for the environment. I love creating magical and exciting environments for the children to explore, learn and grow giving them the best start in life.
