Welcome to the
Nature Nurture Effect
Welcome to the Nature Nurture effect. Thank you for visiting, I do hope you find it useful.
I am an Early Years Professional with over 16 years experience working with children aged 3mths to 8 years, in a variety of settings including managing a large day nursery and working as an Early Years teacher within a Kindergarten class at an independent school.
In addition to teaching I also design and deliver, a wide range of workshops on many topics relating to the Early Years including Phonics and Sensory Play, for both parents and Early Years Practitioners. My training helps parents and practitioners to develop both their confidence and competence, to give children the best possible start in life. I focus on providing high-quality workshops that meet both parents and practitioners needs alike. Bespoke programmes can be arranged on request. These can be short hour long sessions or longer programmes as needed. I provide both Early Years settings and workshops for organisations working with children under five, I also offer consultancy for Early Years settings.
As experienced Early Years Professionals, holding Early Years Professional Status I offer a consultancy service for day nurseries and preschools. I offer support on a wide range of subjects, including pre and post Ofsted inspections.
My passions include promoting Phonics and Storytelling as well as Outdoor Learning through the Forest School approach. I have a degree in Clinical Linguistics and hold a Level 3 Forest School Leader qualification. During school holidays I offer similar short arts and crafts sessions for parents and children aged 3-11yrs, which are available to book in advance for your child to join in the fun!
