I qualified with a NNEB in 1993, and I have 23 years of experience in the Early Years. I believe in an educare setting, for the under 5's with a mixture of child care and education. I have owned my own childcare settings for the last 14 years to a high quality, and am always striving to learn and exceed further, and hope to inspire all staff, parents and children to be the best they can be. I am currently in the last year of my Early Years Foundation Degree. I am looking to utilise my knowledge and experience.
