“Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” – Rita Pierson  

Formerly Her Majesty's Inspector at Ofsted, I established my early years consultancy in May 2017. I have over 20 years experience as an inspector, and almost 40 years of professional involvement in the early years field. I have acquired significant expertise, experience and knowledge. As an Early Years specialist, I inspire confidence and deliver high quality results.  

I provide support to early years settings, organisations, and providers to develop and improve the quality of their early years provision. Through training, advice, and good practice guidance and support, my early years consultant service provides bespoke, targeted and focused interventions to meet specific areas of practice.

I provide individually planned and agreed packages of support on a range of issues including:

  • Leadership and performance management
  • A positive approach to teaching
  • Transition and building emotional resilience
  • Enthusiasm and the ability to engage children through effective learning
  • Bespoke specialised training events
  • Off the peg training packages
  • Quality assurance /  improvement
  • Making the best use of additional funding – EYPP / two-year-old funding
  • Tracking individual children and cohorts / groups of children,  effective use of observations, assessment and planning
  • Early Years Audits
  • Readiness for inspection
  • Safeguarding and child protection
  • Parental engagement 
  • Making a difference, evidencing impact on outcomes for children
  • Website design for early years providers
