About Me…

My career in childcare began in 2007 when qualified I from college, working in two different day nursery settings, with my focus being on caring for children under 12 months old. I went on to manage the Baby Suite at Circus Day Nursery, attending regular training to further my skills. My interests lie in assisting children to discover the world by exploring their natural surroundings, promoting their learning through real life experiences, as well as encouraging children’s creativity from an early age.

I have recently had my first child, and this has reiterated the importance of the Early years framework and my passion for providing high quality childcare to parents and carers.
