Kim has 26 years’ experience working with children in the Early Years and is currently working towards a degree in Childhood studies. As joint leader of our Peartree Preschool, Kim was instrumental in developing our “in the moment” ethos. Kim takes an important role in evaluating the effectiveness of our practices at Peartree and leads the setting in the ECaT initiative (Every Child a Talker) – attending meetings and feeding information on best practice back to the team. ECaT is a tool which helps us to maintain high quality language provision in our setting.
Kim is one of our designated people at Peartree, responsible for ensuring the safeguarding of our children. As a Senior Practitioner and a very natural advocate, she takes a role in mentoring apprentices, ensuring they get the support they need and fully understand our policies and procedures.
