"My Heart & Soul is Early Years... I truly believe in the potential of Every child"
Hi There! My name is Geri! I'm an early years professional and maybe my most favourite title, 'Mother', to one small rather wonderful child. I am extremely passionate and excited by the early years of life and the wonder of seeing the world through a child's eyes. My enthusiasm is something I take with me into every part of life and one that seems to be rather contagious...
I have been working in Early Years for almost twenty years. Over this time I have gained knowledge and experience in a wide range of settings across different countries. Having originally trained in Montessori I have gone on to explore many different approaches in early years to find my own understanding and passion for child-initiated learning.
I hold an Early childhood degree but my learning has never stopped there...from forest school to Reggio to mindfulness and yoga, nutrition, neuroscience, in the moment planning, behaviour and special educational needs, parent partnerships and learning to teach adults I have continued to grow my own expertise so I can deliver the best possible early years education and experiences to all the children, families and professionals that cross my path. I feel it is so important to have an ongoing commitment to lifelong learning and I learn alongside my community every day - professional development at it's best!
