I celebrate children as thinkers and do-ers. All my sessions across Foundation, KS1 and KS2 encourage creativity and children's natural capacity to explore, problem-solve, engineer and create things. Sessions give all children the opportunity to be included.


I've been working with children and young people for over 20 years through my work as a theatre practitioner, play leader and creative session facilitator in all sorts of venues including special and mainstream primary and secondary schools, children's centres and nurseries, museums, play schemes and libraries.
