About Me

I have lived in St Ives for 28 years and have three children. (24,21 and 14 )

I have been in the childcare environment for 30 years starting from the age of 15 and i love it!!

The most rewarding thing about my job is watching the children develop and knowing i have had a hand in that whilst working closely with the parents/carers.I love watching and helping them explore and learning new things every day.

I use a lot of natural resources inside and outside. And i believe in encouraging childrens independence and natural curiosity.

At the moment I am only available for Wheatfields catchment area.

I am qualified in early years and pre-school practice and train regularly in Special educational needs, The early years foundation stage, Learning and Development ,Safeguarding and food Hygiene.
