Early years – my passion!

I’ve worked for over ten years as an early years specialist, supporting midwives, health visitors, early years practitioners, teachers, families and others to help give children their best start in life through positive relationships and play

I love seeing the small steps and big leaps that children make at this age, and also how by providing them with love, care and interest we can make a lifetime’s difference even in difficult circumstances

How can I help?


I offer lively, entertaining and informative training on many aspects of early development and learning

Training can be offered online to reduce costs, and in 1 hour or 2 hour sessions as wished


The knowledge base for early years is huge!

Delivering high quality early learning and childcare is incredibly complex and skilled!

I have many years experience supporting providers though advice and consultation using approaches based on strengths and solutions

My approach

One of my proudest experiences was being part of the writing team for the Early Years national practice guidance in Scotland – Realising the Ambition. I’ve also helped create training modules for government and content for Parent Club on learning and mental health
