 Kelly has worked in the early years for over 25 years, she started by training for her NNEB in 1996 and then progressed to a foundation degree leading to a BA (Hons) in Early education studies. Kelly also trained to be an NVQ assessor in her early career.
Kelly has been a level 3 Forest School practitioner since 2010 and has a passion for outdoor learning coupled with a keen interest in all things’ wellbeing and more recently trained as a mental health first aider and relax kids coach. Kelly also co-authored a book that is available on Amazon 101 Mindful Activities for Happy Minds.

In her career, Kelly has worked as a practitioner with all age groups including out-of-school provision, and for 20 years worked as a manager and regional manager in Early years settings all over the midlands gaining invaluable experience in high-quality and outstanding childcare. In 2019 Kelly decided to take the leap and train as a level 3 adult trainer to share her experience and become a consultant and trainer, just in time for a global pandemic! Over the next couple of years, Kelly returned to being a regional manager but still worked part-time as a consultant and trainer.

She also kept herself busy being part of the professional team rewriting the Birth to 5 matters during lockdown reviewing “the wider context” with a team of professionals and is very proud to have her name on the document’s back pages.
