Early Years Consultancy, Training & Virtual Support

Supporting you with expert advice and guidance in your Early Years Foundation Stage provision in person or virtually.


I know and understand!

Whether you are a small Early Years provision, a large team or a chain of nurseries, rest assured that my 30 years' experience in the Early Years sector has the knowhow and skillset, to support you as a 'one off', over a few sessions or as your ' in house' virtual support.


I am your 'critical friend', a breath of fresh air and a virtual hand to hold. Taking you from where you are now, to where you want to be. Bridging the gap between early years theory and early years practice, in person or virtually here to guide. Your missing piece of the puzzle!
