I’m a qualified teacher and have been working with Early Years children since 2000. I have experience with all ages from birth to five. I began my career as a Nursery Nurse and worked towards achieving my degree and EYP status in 2007. I recently trained to be a qualified Forest School practitioner and now lead Forest School adventures from Nursery to Year 2, which is a highlight of my week.

I really enjoy leading the Nursery Team at Banstead Prep, welcoming families so we can work together to achieve the best start in their children’s educational journey. I believe it is paramount for children to gain independence through learning and having a supportive team will enable them to be confident, active learners. Being part of the Senior Leadership Team ensures I also have a thorough working knowledge of the whole school and that the nursery is are fully considered in all school decisions.
