Mrs Garden – Primrose teacher

Nurturing and inspiring our youngest children is a real passion of mine. I love watching the children get lost in a story and creating imaginative and exciting play opportunities for children to help them develop and learn.  Empowering every child through sharing in their fascinations, using them as a starting point to further develop learning excites me as a practitioner. It enables every child to share a sense of identity and belonging and to learn essential skills through play for future success.  Away from school I love to get outdoors with my three children, go running and bake delicious treats for my friends and family.
