Hello. I am Gill, Bright Sparks Manager.
I’ve worked in Early Years for more than 20 years and have previously managed an Outstanding Ofsted Pre-school setting. I have worked in Family Hubs and have advised preschools and nurseries on the best, inclusive practice, including supporting children with SEND and those with SEMH and behavioural needs.
I have a thorough understanding of how children’s brains and bodies are developing in the early years, and how this affects all aspects of their learning and development.
I am also a qualified Makaton tutor and will be introducing Makaton to the nursery, as it is an excellent way to support all children’s language development.
Most of all, I know that all children are individuals and that it is our job, as practitioners, to meet them at whatever developmental stage they may be and help them each to progress at their own rate.
I am very excited to introduce our team of practitioners, who between them bring a wide range of experience, skills and interests to our nursery and to your children.
