I find story telling and circle time is great for opening up little minds, as it gives children the chance to talk about personal experiences and feelings either in a group or one on one.

I like show and tell as it’s a great way to encourage a child’s interest in a particular topic and as almost anything goes – it’s a chance for children to think ‘outside the box’ a little and invite their friends to come into their own little world.

Likes to play:

I really enjoy messy- sensory fun, watching the children explore the recourses on offer, giving them the opportunity to develop and improve their gross and fine moto, co-ordination and concentration skills. I also enjoy junk modling, letting the children use their imaginations to create fabulouse creations.

I believe children play best when....

They are happy and secure in a safe, friendly and supported environment, with exciting and stimulating resources to keep them active and engaged.
