CAPS is proud to support more than 40 Nurseries and Playgroups across Northern Ireland including those in the Belfast, South Eastern and Southern Trusts. We provide training and support visits to help prepare staff for ETI and Social Services inspections.
I have worked as an Independent Early Years Specialist since 2011 with my colleague under C.A.P.S. Curriculum and Programme Support. I also part manage Bees Nees Early Years Centre in Newtownards and this means that working on the ground keeps me in touch with everyday issues.
After completing a B.A.Hons degree in Early Childhood Studies at Stranmillis College Belfast in 2003 I decided to put my previous experience as playgroup leader to use by supporting and training staff working within Day Nurseries and Pre-school Playgroups.
I have worked as an Independent Early Years Specialist since 2011 as well as part managing an Early Years centre in Newtownards 2 days per week. I previously ran a playgroup and after school facility in my home town of Dromore Co Down for 12 years.
I graduated from Stranmillis College in 2000 with a B.A.Hons in Early Childhood Studies and took up a position within the Southern Trust area supporting Parent and Toddler groups and playgroups.
