Early Years

I have been working in early years for the last 30 year. My specialisms are in listening to children, wellbeing in children and adults and supporting children with social, emotional and mental health needs. All my training is influenced by my current direct work with children through being a Nurture Consultant with Brighter Futures, Bath. My work is also influenced through my wide experience of working with children and staff across this country and through excellent practice I have observed in Reggio Emillia, Sweden and Denmark.

I write and deliver training to suit each individual team/setting

  • Listening to young children
