Ready Steady Calm Kids



Area of expertise:


Previous career as Playgroup Leader for 10 years, then as an Early Years Advisor (Early Years – the organisation) supporting practitioners within all areas of childcare and education.

I’ve experience of working with children who have a range of physical and emotional needs.

I have a particular interest in children’s emotional resilience and regulation and how mindful movement and breathwork can support children’s mental health and coping skills.

I am passionate about children’s wellbeing and that of their caregivers too.

I strive to equip kids and their caregivers with knowledge and strategies that support a positive mindset, heighten self-esteem and build confidence.

I advocate and provide natural, heuristic , sensory-based play involving natural materials, real play items all set up in a welcoming, inviting environment.
