I have had the great pleasure of working
with children from 3 months to 5 years for
over 25 years in a variety of different settings.
They include managing a day nursery and a
preschool, with most recently working in a
reception class within a school.
My passion is to make sure each child
has a unique learning experience, considering
their age, stage of development and interests.
I believe this is the foundation needed for each
child to be able to achieve their full potential whilst enjoying learning through play.
I am originally from Manchester and moved to Maidenhead 17 years ago, where I had my two children who are now 17 and 15 years old.
