I have a passion for child-led learning and provide wonderous opportunities for the children in my care. I create a culture of curiosity, awe and wonder which is embedded in the heart of my setting. Children are able to explore, be inquisitive and have fun and seek adventures; being in control of their own spontaneous play.

“The wider the range of possibilities we offer children, the more intense will be their motivations and the richer their experiences” Loris Malaguzzi
