I have over 10 years experience in the industry and have worked within large and small organisations, I have managed various settings and most recently I worked as a quality leader.
I graduated university with a BA in Childhood Studies in 2013 and have undertaken substantial CPD relating to the early years since then, including but not limited to; observation and planning, SQIP, implementing change, outdoor learning and the new Health and Social Care Standards.
Additionally, I am currently completing my Masters in Business (MBA) and can support with a range of business aspects such as organisational behaviour and growth.
I know just how difficult it can be to juggle everything of the day to day management, staffing, parents and ongoing improvement plans, so this is where I come in. I can take some of the load to support your managers/ teams by offering impartial, honest and supportive audits set against the new health and social care standards and benchmarks.
How does it work?
Initial contact-I would discuss with yourself your needs and areas of concern (SQIP, Care Inspectorate Requirements etc) and arrange a day within your nursery.
1st Observation- I would then meet with the setting manager/ senior manager and carry out the first audit within the nursery setting. I would then feedback any information and action plan to the management team.
Follow Up- I would then touch base a few weeks/months later to do a follow up audit. Or we can offer further ongoing support if requested.
