I provide all children with a clean, safe, comfortable and loving home-from-home environment where they can play and learn. I believe in both structure and flexibility -  I provide many activities with lots of arts and crafts, stories and songs, yet I stay flexible to follow each child's individual wants and needs. We do lots of messy activities and although we try to maintain cleanliness, fun always takes precedence.
 
I am always looking to improve the care and opportunities I provide, which is why I undertake courses in safety and childcare, and research themes and activities.
