I first began working in the Early Years sector in 1997 whereby I started my associates degree in Early Childhood Studies at Guildford College of Further and Higher Education. I graduated with merits and distinctions, earning a place at the University of Worcester, UK. In 2001 I achieved a BA (with Honors) in Early Childhood Studies. Since then my career has taken many wonderful twists and turns. Having worked at the Henry Tyndale School with Autistic children, I took a place in Nagoya, Japan at an International Early Years Program. As the youngest foreign employee, I earned two promotions in 6 months, earning the title of Programme Coordinator and Senior Nursery Nurse (preschool teacher). I offer my thoughts and ideas through blogging at Itsy Bitsy Learning and Itsy Bitsy Printables, in the hope of inspiring others.
