All children deserve the best start in life, therefore I continuously strive for excellence in Early Years Education. I have a CACHE level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education which I completed in the UK before going to Liverpool Hope University in the UK to complete my BA Honours Degree in Early Childhood Studies and Health. I also completed my Masters Degree in Psychology here due to my interest in Child Psychology and Brain Development. I then went on to complete my Early Years Professional Status (EYP) in Edge Hill University in the UK. I have worked in Early Years for 11 years starting my career in the UK as a Nursery Nurse working with children from 6 weeks to five years old. During these 11 years I have had 6 years experience in nursery management. Before moving to Dubai, my most recent job was working as a Nursery Cluster Manager managing two nurseries in the UK. I have been working with Blossom and Babilou since August 2017 and I really cherish the values of the Blossom mantra to Believe, Achieve, Become. I moved here in the Summer 2017 and I find that the diverse multicultural community here is really special and provides children with a breadth of experiences to set them up for their life ahead.
