Opening Wetherby House Montessori has been the culmination of a life-long dream. My passion for childcare started in my teen years, when my own journey as an educator began. Over the years, my experience and understanding of children and early education has grown to allow me facilitate the very best for the children in my setting. I aim to continue my growth and learning as a practitioner and learn from the children every day!

I have 19 years of teaching experience and have always believed in the nobility of teaching, because touching young children’s minds is such a great achievement. I started working at WHM because of their stellar reputation and considering my years of experience and background in early childhood education, I believe I will really make a difference. Working within a nursery is my favourite because their eagerness to learn, positive energy and sweet smiles are sunshine in my eyes.
