I have 2 young children, one currently at Hutton CE School. I qualified as a nursery practitioner in 2001, after which I had many roles in nursery settings such as supporting children with disabilities, delivering speech and language programs and working my way to Nursery manager. I was responsible for the day to day running of the nursery, staffing and planning. I took on the role as INNCO early on in my career and have continued to build on my knowledge and skills over the years from Makaton training to behavior management.
Since having children, I have become involved in a church based parent and toddler group, joining the committee in 2008 until 2011. I had an active role in charity events, arranging talks and volunteers for the program and giving talks myself.
