About Me

-Queens Park/Hanover area.
-I have a calm, playful, connection-based approach.
-I love helping children enjoy time in nature, and love facilitating creativity of all kinds- music (especially singing), art, crafts, building, baking, imaginative play, stories...
-I love nurturing children's natural passion for learning through play and exploration, and I never stop being inspired by all they have to teach me in turn.
-Highly experienced working with children with many different disabilities and individual needs for over 15 years
-I'm looking for around 10-12 hours per week to fit around my work with a local organisation providing movement therapies for children with learning challenges, and time with my own little pre-schooler.
-Interested in RIE/Montessori/Peaceful parenting/Whole brain child etc.
-Top childcare motto: 'start with empathy'!

My Experience

-Currently training part-time as a HANDLE Practitioner, and am certified as a HANDLE Screener. It's a gentle and innovative approach for people with learning challenges, looking at underlying issues and tailoring activity programmes for them to do at home.
-7 years working with families as a nanny and helping run specialist play/home ed programmes for children on the autism spectrum
-4 years working as a support assistant in special schools and colleges with students with a huge range of diagnoses and disabilities including challenges with socialising, interacting, communication, movement, behaviour and learning.
-I'm a parent!
-My family fostered 50+ children as I was growing up which was super-influential to the person I became and the work I've done over the years since.
