A bit about my work in Early Childhood Education…

My passion for Early Years Education has taken me on quite a journey in the past few years! While teaching children in Poland, in 2016 I took the International House Certificate in Teaching Young Learners and Teenagers. A year later I started a Masters in Early Childhood Education through the University of Sheffield. Over the past few years I have become increasingly passionate about combining my work with Central and Eastern European communities with my passion for Early Years education. My research focused on children and families’ rights and story-sharing practices in Scottish Early Years Education. I currently work in an Early Years setting in Fife part-time, alongside my work outlined on this website.

Storytelling

I love telling stories and working with others to tell their story! This can be with individuals, families and early years settings.

Resources for use in Early Childhood Education…

I love making resources for use in early years education, and I hope you enjoy these resources as much as I have enjoyed making them! The resources help children and families tell their own stories and learn about diverse cultures. They also include the themes of children and migration, and connecting with family members who live in different places. I am also happy to work with settings, children and families to explore these ideas, and to create new resources.

I also post new resources/ ideas on social media…
