I am thrilled to be the new Early Years Lead for Hopscotch nurseries. My role is to support the nurseries across the group with Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Practice and Provision.
I join the team with 18 years’ experience within the Early Years sector. My career has have included working with children with special education needs, nursery and out of school care management, Sure Start Children Centre management and working with children’s social care as part of their Multi-agency Safeguarding Hub.
In recent years, I have been the Workforce Development Officer for Portsmouth Local Authority which involved co-ordinating and delivering early years training and development opportunities to the workforce.
I am also a mum of two young children, a girl and boy. My husband is in the Navy so I have good connections with the naval community. I am currently studying for a fast track BA honours in Early Years Sector leadership.
It is a joy to work with the skilled Nursery Managers across the group and to be part of a strong team of high quality childcare providers.
