I have worked for Learning Curve for over 15 years and have developed my knowledge of early years education through continued research, reading and reflecting on current practice. I am particularly interested in children’s emotional development and recently studied the impact of practicing mindfulness with young children as part of my master’s degree. Supporting children learn how to regulate their emotions and providing a safe and secure environment in which they can express themselves and grow as individuals is what motivates my work.
