I have over 15 years experience working with children in mainstream settings and children with special needs and learning disabilities. My career began working in a residential home and school for children with severe Autism and Learning disabilities. This led to my interest in Occupational Therapy. I graduated with a B.Sc. (Hons) as an Occupational Therapist in 2002. My work with children has also led to working with specialist organisations overseas in place such as Nepal and Vietnam. In 2009 I became a Mommy myself to Billy and then to Harry in 2012 . . . . . And then the real hard work (and fun) started!
I have 7 years experience working with children both in mainstream settings and children with special needs and learning disabilities. I graduated with a B.Sc. (Hons) as a Speech and Language Therapist in 2011. Since then I have worked with mainstream preschool and school age children and children of all ages with special needs. Most recently I have been working in a communication team of a special needs school. I have also had opportunity to work overseas - In 2010 I spent six weeks at a medical college in South India. Since my nephews Billy and Harry have come along, I have tried to spend as much time doing auntie duties as possible!! It's my favourite time of the week! I have always enjoyed working with preschool age children as their rate of development and capacity to learn at this age is incredible!
We both felt we wanted to do something new with our careers which incorporated our passion for children's development and their education and Claire wanted find something that fits in with looking after a young family. So the search began. . . . . And then we found Toddler Sense! The rest as they say is history! We can promise you will have a wonderful time each week meeting new mums, bonding with your precious little one and watching them develop in an amazing way! We look forward to seeing you into our classes where you will receive a warm welcome from ourselves and other like minded mums!
