“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 over 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.
We are running a number of workshops throughout 2023 / 2024 at various locations across the West Midlands and further afield. Now available online via Zoom video conferencing.
All these workshops can be adapted to suit your needs and delivered in your setting. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

"Child poverty - Slipping through the net"
In 2018, the UN published a statement on its visit to the UK, by Professor Philip Alston, UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights.
He was highly critical of the UK Government’s economic and welfare policies and pointed to ‘the immense growth in food banks and the queues waiting outside them, the people sleeping rough in the streets, the growth of homelessness, the sense of deep despair that leads even the Government to appoint a Minister for Suicide Prevention and Civil Society, to report in-depth on unheard of levels of loneliness and isolation.’ ...
... The number of families being referred to food banks is at an all-time high and continues to rise. For children, the impact on their chances of a decent education and life success is profound.
When children grow up poor, they miss out on the things most children take for granted: warm clothes, school trips, having friends over for tea. Poor children achieve less at school and this affects their future economic success, as well as their health and mental well-being.

As an early years consultant I fully endorse the Reggio Emilia Approach to the learning, values and development of our young children.
I have attended the 'International Loris Malaguzzi Centre' in Italy on a number of occasions to keep up to date with techniques, innovations and core values of their approach.
I always come away feeling inspired.
This morning I delivered my Education Inspection Framework seminar / workshop to these fantastic early years practitioners. Thank you Penny Virdee for inviting me to work with your wonderful team. Together you inspire me with your dedication, enthusiasm and passion for delivering high quality teaching, learning and care to the children who attend your settings. It was such a pleasure working with you all. Please invite me again.
