Hi, I have been working in Early Learning & Childcare since 2003, working in a range of council, partnership and private settings. After leaving School, I studied at James Watt College for two years, gaining my NC & HNC in Childcare & Education. After 11 years, I returned to further education in 2014 – I completed an NVQ in Management through West College Scotland and then went on to study my BA Childhood Practice at the University of Strathclyde, which I graduated from in 2018. The best part of my job is forming positive working relationships with children, families and staff and helping young children grow and develop within a nurturing learning environment. I have seen many changes within the early years sector over the years – it is such a rewarding job and I love being a part of it. Outside of work, I spend my time with my Fiancé, family and friends. I enjoy going to music/comedy gigs and festivals.
