M.A.Ed, BSc Hons, S.R.N, H.V, Advanced Diploma Child Development, EYPS, Professional Director/EYPS
I opened the nursery at Crescent School in 2015 and rebranded the nursery as Pathfinders in 2018. I had previously established and run Nature Trails nursery at Cawston with the support of my husband and a professional management team. I am the Warwickshire chair of the National Day Nurseries Association and have represented the Early Years sector in numerous roles over the past 14 years at local and national level. In recent years, I have been a speaker at various UK and International Early Years conferences on improving the quality of nursery provision.
Prior to opening the nursery, I was a health visitor for 15 years and subsequently was a university lecturer specialising in child developmental psychology and nurse and health visitor education to postgraduate level. I have experience teaching nursery nurses at various levels of study for the Open University.
My three daughters have now grown up which gives me some time to enjoy hill walking and outdoor pursuits. I am proud of the nursery and its staff.
