I’m Amy – mummy, wife, founder of Born to Bee Happy and early years expert. Ever since I can remember I’ve been early years mad!
Being a teacher I am passionate about education. I just love learning! I truly believe in lifelong learning and I am always looking to develop myself – every day is a learning day. Even as adults I think we have so much to learn, no matter what age. I really enjoy furthering my own knowledge, even when it comes to studying and completing a Masters in Early Years. I also think we have a lot to learn from children, just watching them, learning about the way they develop, and how they play in the present moment is fascinating - I love seeing the theory in action!
I’ve been working in education and early years for the last 15 years, teaching all ages from babies to adults in a variety of roles. Most recently I have been supporting and training professionals working in the early years sector, to improve standards and outcomes for all children. I believe that the early years are the most crucial time of anyone’s life as this is when all of the foundations are laid. This is why as an early years inspector, I'm passionate about ensuring early years provision is of the highest standard.
But a baby's very first teacher is their parents. It is the most important job in the world, yet the only one we never get trained to undertake! I have always said that I think everyone should have much more support with parenting training, which is where I want to help. The vast majority of people go on to become a parent and I am convinced that every parent just wants the very best for their babies and children. Parenting is the most rewarding yet challenging job there is!
Some parents do it well, some need a helping hand, and some wish they had known what to tell the younger version of themselves before they even started...because babies don’t come with a manual! Well, that’s where I come in.
I want to empower you as new and expectant parents to transform your journey through pregnancy, parenting and beyond. I want to share my passion for the early years and for learning with you all to help you grow as parents with your children.
