Early Years

I have been working as an Early Years Practitioner with the PPRN team since 2016. I have worked with children for many years and I have a great interest in children’s unique ability to learn through play and enjoy creating enabling environments which support children’s overall learning and development.


Being a mother has also given me immense empathy when working with children and their families.

I am always passionate about gaining more knowledge and experience in order to enhance my practice.
